In Agility and Discipline Made Easy, Rational Unified Process (RUP) and Open Unified Process (OpenUP) experts Per Kroll and

Bruce MacIsaac share twenty well-defined best practices that you and your team can start adopting today to improve the agility,

predictability, speed, and cost of software development.
Kroll and MacIsaac outline proven principles for software development, and supply a number of supporting practices for each.

You'll learn what problems each practice addresses and how you can best leverage RUP and OpenUP (an open-source version

of the Unified Process) to make the practice work for you. You'll find proactive, prescriptive guidance on how to adopt the

practices with minimal risk and implement as much or as little of RUP or OpenUP as you want.

Learn how to apply sample practices from the Unified Process so you can

Execute your project in iterations
Embrace and manage change
Test your own code
Describe requirements from the user perspective
Architect with components and services
Model key perspectives
Whether you are interested in agile or disciplined development using RUP, OpenUP, or other agile processes, this book will help

you reduce the anxiety and cost associated with software improvement by providing an easy, non-intrusive path toward

improved results--without overwhelming you and your team.[/align]
