Many books discuss Agile from a theoretical or academic perspective. Becoming Agile takes a different approach and focuses on explaining Agile from a case-study perspective. Agile principles are discussed, explained, and then demonstrated in the context of a case study that flows throughout the book. The case study is based on a mixture of the author's real-world experiences.
The germ of this book was planted more than two decades
ago in my
efforts to explain economic theory to myself. But why write a book, for
myself or anyone else, trying to explain economic theory rather than
proposing a concrete solution to one of the world’s many urgent problems,
such as how to alleviate income inequality or do something
global warming? Because I had grown tired of listening to heated arguments
that always seemed to disagree for reasons I could never quite
identify. Economics textbooks usually suggested doing nothing.

The history of quality is the history of human efforts to make things perfect in an imperfect
The main purpose of the quality procedures is to reduce errors and increase customer
satisfaction. Errors and mistakes are part of human nature, but so is the ability to create
solutions and find better alternatives. By using modern quality management tools we can
shift the balance from errors towards solutions and better alternatives.
My name is Nick Vujicic (pronounced Voy-a-chich). I am
twenty-seven years old. I was born without any limbs, but I
am not constrained by my circumstances. I travel the world
encouraging millions of people to overcome adversity with faith, hope, love, and courage so that they may pursue their dreams. In this book I will share with you my experiences in dealing with adversity and obstacles, some of them unique to me but most universal to us all.
My Stay at Paris and My Departure for Strasburg, Where I Find the Renaud--My Misfortunes at Munich and
My Sad Visit to Augsburg
At ten o'clock in the morning, cheered by the pleasant feeling of being once more in that Paris which is so
imperfect, but which is the only true town in the world, I called on my dear Madame d'Urfe, who received me
with open arms. She told me that the young Count d'Aranda was quite well, and if I liked she would ask him
to dinner the next day. I told her I should be delighted to see him, and then I...
Permit me, my dear friend, to inscribe to you this very imperfect Life of your beloved Queen, in remembrance of that dear old time when the world was brighter and more beautiful than it is now (or so it seemeth to me) and things in general were pleasanter;—when better books were written, especially biographies, and there were fewer of them;—when the "gentle reader" and the "indulgent critic" were extant;— when Realism had not shouldered his way into Art;—when there were great actors and actresses of the fine old school, like Macready and the elder Booth—Helen Faucit and Charlotte...
Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas were separated from Hodgkin's disease by recognition of the Sternberg-Reed cells early in the twentieth century. The histologic classification for non-Hodgkin's lymphomas has been one of the most contentious issues in oncology. Imperfect morphologic systems were supplanted by imperfect immunologic systems, and poor reproducibility of diagnosis has hampered progress.
Failure of the uterus to contract and retract following childbirth has for centuries been recognized as the most striking cause of postpartum hemorrhage. Uterine atony is a condition which, in spite of the presence of effective medical interventions, still claims thousands of maternal lives. In the developing world, lack of access to uterotonic therapies that have been available for almost a century represents one of the most glaring disparities in obstetric care today.

After being frequently urged to write upon this subject, and as often declining to do it, from apprehension of
my own inability, I am at length compelled to take up the pen, however unqualified I may still feel myself for
The use of the Foxglove is getting abroad, and it is better the world should derive some instruction, however
imperfect, from my experience, than that the lives of men should be hazarded by its unguarded exhibition, or
that a medicine of so much efficacy should be condemned and rejected as dangerous and unmanageable.
Ways of acquiring land vary depending on institutional arrangements. In Russia land is commonly leased
but sometimes owned, and in Ukraine, where private land sales are not allowed, all land is leased, usually
for 5 years although some operators try to lock in lease contracts at favorable terms for much longer. All
over the region, land rents relative to land of comparable quality in other parts of the world are very low.
