Developers tend to focus on the technical aspects and advantages of agile practices. While these are hopefully interesting to their executive and management colleagues, these people may not be able to fully appreciate what agile can do for the organization from technical arguments alone. This talk lays out the economic impact of agile software development practices in terms accessible to non-technical managers. These arguments should be directly interesting to managers attending the conference, and useful for developers and project managers who find themselves advocating for agile practice adoption.
