Agile teams have been struggling with the concept of continuous improvement since the first Agile frameworks were developed, and still very little has been written about the practice of continuous improvement in Agile environments. Although team retrospectives have been prescribed and some practices have been introduced in order to implement and facilitate them, the truth is that most Agile teams are conducting dull retrospectives that end with a list of things that have been done wrong, just to repeat the same list two weeks later at the next meeting. Instead of listing hundreds of Japanese-labeled tools, this book gives you practical insights into how to spot improvement opportunities, how to plan for improvement and how to engage everyone in your company in the Kaizen process. In addition, it will also provide you with 27 proven practices and 12 bonus activities to introduce into your retrospectives in order to keep them fresh, creative and exciting, so you can promise a team that, in a year’s time, no two retrospectives will be alike. This book helps you as a manager, team leader, change agent or consultant in any type of organization to unleash the real power of Kaizen cultures – no matter what kind of organization, market, product, technology, vision, goal or size. It provides you with the background, tools and practical hints on how to engage your organization in a process of continuous quest for new and better ways of performing.

Weniger ist mehr! Der Hype um Big Data flacht langsam ab. Bei vielen Anwendern in den Unternehmen macht sich zurzeit Ernüchterung und Enttäuschung breit – aus den riesigen Datenmengen wirklich nützliche Erkenntnisse zu ziehen, ist viel mühsamer, als Technologen und IT-Anbieter gerne behaupten. Natürlich müssen Unternehmen heute ihre digitale Kompetenz erhöhen. Die entscheidende Frage lautet jedoch: Wie nutzen Unternehmen Daten wirklich effizient, ohne sich selbst technisch, personell und finanziell zu überfordern? Smart Data steht dabei für eine sich schrittweise vortastende Vorgehensweise. Der gesunde Menschenverstand ist dabei ein ebenso wichtiger Rohstoff wie die Daten selbst. Ziel ist es, in allen Anwendungsfeldern die Kunden besser zu verstehen, um sie zu binden, sowie damit ihren Kundenwert langfristig zu erhöhen. Dabei muss die Privatsphäre des Kunden natürlich beachtet und angemessen geschützt werden. Dieses Buch zeigt systematisch und mit vielen praktischen Anwendungsfällen, wie das geht. Und was sich bei Führung und Unternehmensstruktur ändern muss, damit ein Unternehmen zum Smart-Data-Champion werden kann.

Requirements by Collaboration: Workshops for Defining Needs focuses on the human side of software development--how well we work with our customers and teammates. Experience shows that the quality and degree of participation, communication, respect, and trust among all the stakeholders in a project can strongly influence its success or failure. Ellen Gottesdiener points out that such qualities are especially important when defining user requirements and she shows in this book exactly what to do about that fact. Gottesdiener shows specifically how to plan and conduct requirements workshops. These carefully organized and facilitated meetings bring business managers, technical staff, customers, and users into a setting where, together, they can discover, evolve, validate, verify, and agree upon their product needs. Not only are their requirements more effectively defined through this collaboration, but the foundation is laid for good teamwork throughout the entire project. Other books focus on how to build the product right. Requirements by Collaboration focuses instead on what must come first--the right product to build.

Mapping Irish Media offers up-to-date research and analysis of the Irish media by Ireland's leading experts in the field. The book is sponsored by the School of Communications at Dublin City University and is specially intended as a much-needed textbook for the fast growing numbers of media studies students in Ireland. It is highly readable and also suitable for those with a general interest in the subject. The book focuses on a wide range of media including the more traditional broadcast and print media (newspapers, radio, and television and film), and also engages with newer media such as the internet and DVD, and newer media genres such as reality TV. Although the book is traditionally structured in sections on production, texts and audiences, the editors' intention has been to raise issues which cross-cut these different aspects.
