Application Development Trends magazine posted an article earlier this week that tells those using agile to “amortize” your agile project. If your first reaction is like mine, you’re thinking, “What the hell does that mean?”

It means breaking down initiatives that traditionally require a large up-front effort into smaller chunks so that only those efforts that you need right now are addressed and paid for. You “amortize” the cost of application development over a period of time so you can start getting the benefits faster while paying for it while you go.

Makes sense, right?

The article goes into some interesting examples of how this can be done. Check it out and let us know what you think.
