Feature Driven Development (FDD) is one of the agile methods I think does not get enough attention. In particular, the principles of FDD – as they impact project management -are very useful in agile and non-agile environments. The book that I used to learn about FDD is A Practical Guide to Feature-Driven Development by by Stephen R. Palmer and John M. Felsing. This book has a good description of FDD but is weighed down with a specific modeling approach.

Recently, Software Engineering Radio had an interview with Jeff DeLuca, one of the creators of feature driven development. I found it to be a good introduction to the topic. However, for a practitioner of FDD there will be nothing new here.
