I would like to investigate if and how agile priciples can be applied to a TV production enviroment in Denmark. Primarely with a focus on developing a project process that help the production crew navigate in the process when the final TV program haven't been decided from the beginning (outcome is unclear)? 

Therefore, does any of you know anything about this - any suggestions for reading or such is also very welcome!
