This page contains resources for stuff we feel is important and useful for managers in an agile environment, that might help them answer the questions above. 

Note: It is not a complete or a final list, we try to keep it small enough to be digestible but not too small so that it is missing the major things. Your comments \ Suggestions are more than welcome.
