  • Introduction
    In general, unlike traditional linear (waterfall) development, Agile methods seek to break down organizational barriers and drive toward faster incremental development and
    deployment, without compromising
    the quality of the delivered product.
    Agile is focused on individuals and
    interactions over processes and
    tools, yet contrary to some (widely
    held) beliefs, “true” Agile
    Development is extremely
    structured and disciplined, and
    typically will only succeed in higher
    maturity organizations

  • History of the Agile Methodology?
    The modern definition of agile software development evolved in the mid-1990s as part of a reaction against "heavyweight" methods, perceived to be typified by a heavily regulated, regimented, micro-managed use of the waterfall model of development. The processes originating from this use of the waterfall model were seen as bureaucratic, slow, demeaning, and inconsistent with the ways that software developers actually perform effective work. Initially, agile methods were called "lightweight methods.“
    In 2001, 17 prominent figures in the field of agile development (then called "light-weight methods") came together at the Snowbird ski resort in Utah to discuss ways of creating software in a lighter, faster, more people-centric way. They coined the terms "Agile Software Development" and "agile methods", and they created the Agile Manifesto, widely regarded as the canonical definition of agile development and accompanying agile principles. Later, some of these people formed The Agile Alliance, a non-profit organization that promotes agile development.
  • What Is Agile Methodology?
    Although there are many differing approaches to Agile Development, there are a number of shared characteristics that generally apply. These are:
    • Agile Development Methodology is an approach to software development that values early and continuous delivery of production ready software in a structured, systematic and repeatable way
    • At its core, Agile focuses on the efficiencies that are natural to small teams that have well defined roles and responsibilities. The goal is to have a process that enables the highest percentage of project effort to be spent on building quality components while avoiding all extraneous steps
    • Frequent delivery of proven production ready software is the single most important measurement of progress
  • Agile Methodology, cont.
    • Development iterations that are most typically between 2 and 6 weeks in length
    • Strict adherence to:
    • Iteration start and end dates
    • Iteration deliverables which include (not necessarily in this order)
    • Requirements gathering and analysis
    • Planning
    • Design
    • Development/Build
    • Testing
    • Deployment
    • Documentation
    • Delivering production ready software (iteration end dates are not milestones)
  • Agile Methodology, cont.
    • Embracing requirements changes at all times during the
    project but locking requirements once they are included in an
    • Using each completed iteration as a mechanism to reprioritize business requirements
    • Continuous face-to-face interaction with requirements drivers whether they be clients, business partners, or subject matter experts
    • A common theme among team members, which strives for the most simplistic solution to a given problem. These typically focus on specific problems which are real today and do not attempt to address problems which may occur in the future.
    • Continuous re-evaluation of the methodology, the procedures, the code. Everything should be frequently re-evaluated for inefficiencies and updated to reflect the current team, department, company, and industry environments.
  • Principles behind the Agile Manifesto
  • Principles behind the Agile Manifesto continued
  • Principles behind the Agile Manifesto #3
  • The AgileValues
    We are uncovering better ways of developingsoftware by doing it and helping others do it.Through this work we have come to value:
  • What is Scrum?
  • Scrum origins
    Jeff Sutherland
    Initial scrums at Easel Corp in 1993
    IDX and 500+ people doing Scrum
    Ken Schwaber
    Scrum presented at OOPSLA 96 with Sutherland
    Author of three books on Scrum
    Mike Beedle
    Scrum patterns in PLOPD4
    Ken Schwaber and Mike Cohn
    Co-founded Scrum Alliance in 2002, initially within the Agile Alliance
  • Whohas used Scrum?
  • Feature request from
    Product X
  • Product backlog
    List of features
    Master list
    Allowed to grow and change
  • Key people and jobs
    tools they need
  • Scrum team
    Project Team.
    Small but with a punch
    Easy to manage
    Everyone gets to know one another
  • Other key people
    Developers and Testers
  • Releaseplanning
    Estimated guess of 500 hours ?
    the product owner and team identify the features they want
    Experts are not perching
  • Sprints
    Sprints are short duration milestone
    4 or more sprints
    Release cycles and sprints
    have a positive correlation relationship
