Costing Agile: Win the Timesheet Debate with Finance
Agile Development Costing and Automation of Actuals
The CFO wants to know the cost of your Agile teams' work and what can be capitalized across the teams. But your teams hate filling out timesheets, and no one can figure out how to align Agile activities with capitalization rules. What do you do when you don't want finance to stall your Agile transformation or hinder your Agile team success?
