Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 141!

In the SPaMCAST 141, I ask, "Are you ready to implement agile?"  It might sound like a simple question but it is imperative that you not only have an answer but a structured rational for the answer.  I propose a simple quiz (part of my simple checklist series) to structure the discussion when you want to know whether you are ready or not.  It should be noted that like any readiness discussion, determining whether you are ready to implement agile should be viewed as a continuum.  Your journey, whether remediating issues or planning for change, shouldn’t be thought of in absolutes; approach readiness as a journey.

Shameless Ad for my book! 

Mastering Software Project Management: Best Practices, Tools and Techniques co-authored by Murali Chematuri and myself and published by J. Ross Publishing. We have received unsolicited reviews like the following: "This book will prove that software projects should not be a tedious process, neither for you or your team."
