SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - June 13, 2007) - CMC Media Inc., the publisher of Agile Business® online magazines including the Configuration Management Journal and the Agile Journal, today released the latest issue of Agile Journal.

The core values of individuals, interactions, customer collaboration, and responding to change are important to solving business problems -- even when working software isn't the ultimate product. Agile practices are enabling management, product development, procurement, academic, and other types of organizations to improve the quality of their work and be responsive to their businesses' ever-changing needs.

The June 2007 edition of the Agile Journal explores the use of Agile processes in a variety of contexts. Mishkin Berteig and Garry Berteig share three different examples of how Agile processes can be effective outside the typical software development domain. Kevin Parker considers the impact of Agile processes on key organizations outside of development, particularly the program management office (PMO) and IT operations. To achieve 'harmony' on an Agile team, Ross Pettit argues that the IT organization must engage its business partners and ensure that the business can consume the frequent changes that Agile development promises.

The Agile Journal is an online magazine published monthly and driven by Editor in Chief and former Forrester/Giga analyst Liz Barnett. Agile Journal is the only publication providing high-quality original content discussions focusing strictly on the problems faced by organizations adopting agile practices across their businesses.
