The Personal Software Process (PSP) and the Team Software Process (TSP) are process improvement frameworks tailored to produce virtually defect free software and deliver it on time.
The main focus of this speed talk is to state some of the similarities and differences between TSP/PSP and Scrum methodologies as well as some Agile practices. Why was there a need to blend these methods (TSP and Agile)? What were we trying to accomplish, or what was the goal here? The goal was to get the best of the TSP and Agile methods/models so that we could develop high quality products in a predictable and repeatable way to successfully tackle projects that are highly unpredictable, rapidly changing, with unknown final client, among others.
There are a few similarities between both management methods (TSP and SCRUM), as well as some differences. There also seems to be a lot of misunderstandings regarding TSP and this presentation will try to debunk some of them. TSP can be Agile too! – Incremental, iterative and adaptive.
