This is one of the first few books on Agile which goes beyond presenting the anecdotal benefits of Agile and discusses the business metrics which can be used to quantify the ROI.
Hence it will be of great interest to those in senior management positions.
It will also encourage them to avoid local process sub optimization and lead their organizations towards optimizing the system as a whole. Such holistic optimization will yield good business results.
A valuable book for Agile enthusiasts too, since it will equip them with material to present a business case for Agile methods to the senior management.
