Using an Agile approach to scope software projects - Authored by Christina Lynch: Software development methodologies are often religiously observed. But we think you stand to lose out by arbitrarily closing yourself off to alternatives. That being said, when it comes to the software scoping process, the best tool for the job is Agile. Why? Because it’s proven time and time again to provide an effective and efficient framework for propelling new software initiatives forward.
Helastel take project scoping very seriously indeed and the results of doing that speak for themselves. It boils down to posing the right questions about what the business requires, while gaining a 360 degree understanding of user perspectives, to plot a pathway to the optimum end 'product'. Here's why an Agile methodology lends itself so well to supporting that process. [Read more...]

The Introduction to Configuration Management with IBM CLM video series on developerWorks is a great beginning to working with the various CLM components and features to improve your engineering streams and manage change:
Introduction to Configuration Management with IBM CLM: CLM global configuration - The video builds on the concept of a lifecycle project in IBM's solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) by introducing concepts and terminology introduced in version 6.0 of the IBM Jazz applications. These concepts include baselines, steams, configurations, global configurations, components and other. These capabilities are useful when reusing requirements or components in product variants, in product line engineering, and in everyday project development.
Introduction to Configuration Management with IBM CLM: What is Product Line Engineering? - IBM Rational offers solutions to support each phase of the product line engineering (PLE) lifecycle. PLE is a methodology that lets you deliver and evolve entire product lines more efficiently.
Introduction to Configuration Management with IBM CLM: Managing Requirement Changes with DOORS Next Generation - In this short demonstration you will see how changes to requirements can be made in an isolated stream, captured in change sets and linked with work items and then shared and delivered for reuse in other streams.
Introduction to Configuration Management with IBM CLM: IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation: Working with baselines - In this video we learn how to work with baselines in IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation V6.0.
Introduction to Configuration Management with IBM CLM: Effectively Manage Changes, Baselines and Engineering streams - In this short demonstration you will see how global configurations can be used to help you effectively manage changes across the engineering lifecycle. We will start off by examining a new defect that has recently been submitted against an Automated Meter Reader system. This system helps automate collection of water usage in residential and commercial buildings. The project planning and change management component of the IBM Continuous Engineering Solution allow us to coordinate amongst team members using releases and work items. Work items are typically small chunks of work carried out by team members on a project and can represent tasks like enhancements, defects and system change requests.
Introduction to Configuration Management with IBM CLM: Effectively Manage and Reuse Components - In this short demonstration you will see how global configurations can be used to help you effectively manage, organize and reuse components that contain artifacts across the development lifecycle.
