Most Agile frameworks, like Scrum, Crystal and XP, were conceived by developers for a small team of developers. With the inherent maturity of the agile concept, 'old' practices, such as Lean, were employed to scale Agile beyond a team of 5-9 software developers. SAFe and Disciplined Agile are good examples of augmenting Agile with Lean, at the cost of restricting agility to ensure scalability and financial viability. Some Lean practices, like Kanban, were re-discovered and are considered by some practitioners as the next agile step. Agile beyond software development is not necessarily as easy as you hear in conferences. In the trenches the famous 'mindset change' is both ways: Agile must also learn to accept other ways of doing things and adapt to the needs of non-technical teams.

Requirements in Agile

white paper
by Joy Beatty Candase Hokanson

When companies move to an agile Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC), they often remove the processes and analysis of their waterfall SDLC because, as the Agile Manifesto puts it, “They value individual and interactions over processes and tools.” Some of the rigor should be removed – waterfall processes can get bogged down with gates and sign-offs. However, caution must be exercised to not go too far against processes and analysis and rely just upon backlogs and user stories. Requirements and the analysis that leads to those requirements are just as essential in an agile project as they are in a waterfall project. The difference lies in how much requirements analysis is completed and the timing of it.

Topic Teasers Vol. 138: How Agile and Traditional Teams Hitch Up

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: We are starting a project that is part hardware and part software driven. The organization has asked me if we want to use a traditional approach or a more flexible version like agile.

Disciplined Agile and The Standard for Risk Management

by Mike Griffiths
