Adaptive software development processes epitomized by Agile methodologies are based on continual improvement – incremental changes that emerge as teams iterate and learn about the product they are developing. This appears to conflict with the world of the program office, responsible for defining the software development lifecycle (SDLC), in which a stable and repeatable development process with well-defined ownership and controls is a common objective. Using recent examples in which agile methods have been successfully introduced into large organizations with existing SDLCs, we consider the difficulties of creating a verifiable process when the process itself is continually being modified, and look at how software development can be managed and controlled without stifling the benefits of adaptive software development processes.
