So why more and more companies choose Agile methods? How to calculate if it is more expensive or cheaper to use Agile? I will share few real projects and products examples and we will draw conclusions about Agile economics from them.

And a project is uniquein that it is not a routine operation, but a specific set of operations designed to accomplish a singular goal.
