"In the 21st Century, there will be two kinds of company. Those who delight their customers and those who do not. The former will prosper and thrive, the latter will be challenged to survive."Just over a decade ago, a set of major management breakthroughs occurred. These breakthroughs enabled software development teams to achieve both disciplined execution and continuous innovation, something that was hitherto impossible to accomplish with traditional management methods.
-- Steve Denning, author of The Leaders Guide to Radical Managment
