Actions 30 application/pdf Agile - Now What?.pdf Agile - Now What? PAPER.
Agile methods are typically only used for smaller less-critical projects. The challenge is rooted in the software industry’s dangerously limited view of requirements. This paper aims to shed some light on different types of requirements, requirements that are better suited for controlling both small and big projects systematically. It will go on to suggest some simple methods that the Agile community can adapt to regain systematic control while still being Agile. Following these simple principles one would be much better armed to tackle not only small projects, but also to expand the use of Agile principles to any size project.
