Presentation Transcript

slide 1: Module 1: Fundamentals of the Agile Development Approach

slide 2:  Development that is characterized by gated stages.  Waterfall - Most common and widely used approach Plan Driven Development

slide 3: SDLC - Waterfall

slide 4:  Requirements remains same through out the project  Requirements are well understood  Size of the projects are small to mid scale  Highly structured systematic process Plan Driven Development – Where toUse

slide 5: Software is dumb- Why What the customer really needed How the customer explained it How the project leader understood it How the analyst designed it How the programmer wrote it What the beta testers received How the business consultant How the project was documented What operations installed When itwas delivered

slide 6: • What if • The requirements required to change during the project life cycle • Requirements required to meet with business challenges time to time • Client wants to out perform the competitors by introducing the product first in the market • Businesses and project stakeholders are constantly looking to improve process andinnovate. Project Requirements

slide 7: • Value driven method • Understand and meets the challenges of today’s business • Offers much more value to the stakeholders • Firm emphasis on customer satisfaction and quick ROI • It is all via Iterative approach Agile Development Methodology

slide 8: Iterative Software Development

slide 9: What is Agile Development – Definition • Iterative and Incremental Software development method where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self organizing cross- functional teams.

slide 10: Agile Manifesto • Individuals and interaction over processes and tools Working software over comprehensive documentation Customer collaboration over contract negotiation responding to change over following a plan. • While there is value in the items on the right side we value the items on the left more.

slide 11: Principals of AgileDevelopment 1. Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software. 2. Welcome changing requirements even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer’s competitive advantage. 3. Deliver working software frequently from a couple of weeks to a couple of months with a preference to the shorter timescale. 4. Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project.

slide 12: Principals of AgileDevelopment 5. Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and 6. support they need and trust them to get the job done. 7. The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation. 8. Working software is the primary measure of progress. 9. Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors developers and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.

slide 13: Principals of AgileDevelopment 10. Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhance agility. Simplicity—the art of maximizing the amount of work not done—is essential. 11. The best architectures requirements and designs emerge from self-organizing teams. 12. At regular intervals the team reflects on how to become more effective then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly.
