Much of the mainstream agile discussion focuses on the construction of straightforward systems by a small, co-located team working in a collaborative and self-organizing manner. Yet we know that there is more to software delivery than just construction, that many teams are neither small nor co-located, and that many teams are working on complex systems within a complex environment. The evidence that agile approaches result in improved time-to-market, improved quality, and improved developer productivity compel us to tailor agile strategies for these more challenging environments, but where do we start?
In this webcast Scott Ambler will walk through how the Agile Scaling Model (ASM) provides the context and advice for effectively tailoring agile techniques to meet the real-world situation that you find yourself in. It describes how to extend the agile construction life cycle into a full-fledged disciplined agile delivery life cycle from project initiation to production. It adds appropriate, lean governance to balance self organization and adds a risk-driven viewpoint to the mainstream value-driven strategy to increase overall chance of project success. It then describes how to tailor agile practices to address scaling factors which an agile team may face, including team size, physical distribution, organizational distribution, regulatory compliance, organizational complexity, technical complexity, and enterprise disciplines (such as enterprise architecture, strategic reuse, and portfolio management).
