Presentation on the Benefits of Agile

Chapter 1 of Succeeding with Agile summarizes of the published research on the benefits of adopting an agile process. I created a presentation based on that research. The presentation is available in Keynote and PowerPoint format and is released under a Creative Commons license with the hope that others will use and extend it.
