Transcript

  • 1. Some anti-patterns of agile software development Sriram Narayan ThoughtWorks
  • 2. Velocity as target
    • stages within an iteration
    • each stage is inventory for the next
    • minimize build up of inventory
    • velocity is a measure of end to end flow
    • purpose of velocity is to minimize waste
    • difficult to achieve this without on-site customer
  • 3. Points estimation under fixed time and scope
    • estimating in points makes sense when scope is negotiable
    • If budget, schedule, quality and scope are fixed at the outset, then estimation becomes commitment
    • commitment is better served by real units of time
  • 4. Not failing fast enough
    • Fail fast is enabled by tight feedback loops
    • Feedback must be of good quality
    • Best feedback is tested functionality
    • Iterative versus incremental
    • But what about costs?
  • 5. Risk adjusted costs
  • 6. Cost-ineffective pair programming
    • For a project that runs for, say six months or more, there should no extra development cost on account of pair programming.
    • Pairing pays off in several intangile, hard-to-measure ways.
    • How to see if there is extra cost?
  • 7. Questions? Comments? [email_address]
