The next Software Process and Measurement Cast will feature interview with Steve Boronski. Steve and I had a great conversation about Agile and Prince2. The conversation focused on the new Prince2 Agile Project Management Best Practice extension to Prince2 and why the world needs another interpretation of Agile project management.

The next Software Process and Measurement Cast will an essay on measurement. When we measure we are sending an explicit message about what is important to the organization and therefore sending an explicit signal on how we expect people to act (remember the old adage, “you get what you measure”).

We will also include a visit to the QA Corner and perhaps a new installment from Steve Tendon’s book on the TameFlow method.
