“I moderated a panel discussion at the Premier CIO Forum a few weeks ago, and one question that seemed to stump the panelists was, ‘Tell me how you’ve adjusted your CapEx budget process to incorporate agile.’ The audience was far from being able to develop their CapEx budgets to accommodate the way agile works,” says John Doucette, vice president of consulting operations at custom software provider Magenic.
