A first-hand experience in conversion to the agile method

Agile continues to grow in popularity as a software development method, with an ever-increasing number of organizations migrating to use of some form of the methodology. Successfully meeting challenges in agile implementation is dependent on a number of factors, from organizational to people to process to technologies.
