The software industry is shifting from large-scale, prescriptive processes that mandate rigorous procedures and policies to lighter, more agile methodologies. Are these agile processes appropriate for your organization? If so, which should you consider adopting? What challenges can you expect and how can you overcome them?
In this presentation Scott Ambler, Senior Consultant with Ronin International describes and contrasts the leading agile methodologies, including Crystal Light, eXtreme Programming, Scrum, Dynamic System Development Method, Feature Driven Development, and Agile Modeling. He also discusses the possibility of tailoring an agile instantiation of the Rational Unified Process (RUP).
