Show fifty features my interview with David J Anderson.  We discussed agile management and many other topics. The interview was fascinating!  I have decided to push it out into the feed as one whole file rather than breaking due to ensure the continuity of the conversation (no real break points).

David J. Anderson leads a management consulting firm focused on improving performance of technology companies. He has many years management experience leading teams on agile software development projects. David was a founder of the agile movement through his involvement in the creation of Feature Driven Development. His first book, Agile Management for Software Engineering - Applying the Theory of Constraints for Business Results, published in 2003 by Prentice Hall, introduced many ideas from Lean and Theory of Constraints in to software engineering. He was also a founder of the APLN, a non-profit dedicated to improving management and leadership in technology companies. Recently David has been focusing his attention on business agility and enterprise scale agile software transitions through a synergy of the CMMI model for organizational maturity with Agile and Lean methods.

Note that the Lean Kanban2009 Conference noted in the interview has been rescheduled to May 6 – 8.  Information can be found at

There is no essay on this show.  I try to keep the length of the show around 30 minutes and the essay would have pushed the 45 minute boundary.  Check out the text of the current essay at

Next Software Process and Measurement Cast:
The next Software Process and Measurement Cast will feature an interview with Tim Lister.  Tim is one the great thinkers in the IT field.  We discussed the book "Adrenaline Junkies and Template Zombies” which was co-authored with the five other principals of the Atlantic Systems Guild.  The ideas and topics covered in the book and interview have already refined my thoughts on a number of topics.  I expect that you will have the same experience this is not an interview to miss.
