Speach: Scaling Agile for Critical Systems
Agile development is mandatory to remain flexible and value-oriented at the same time. Although most projects claim usage of agile methods, empirical research shows that a majority sees is rather as a move towards anything goes. Agile practices must be scaled to specific environments such as team set-up, business-risk and quality requirements such as safety. Especially distributed teams face severe difficulties with agile techniques due to distance in time and location. Our research provides results from an empirical field study on distributed development with agile practices. The benchmark covers some thirty companies from different regions and industries worldwide. It looks towards how agile methods can be scaled for global teams and distributed development. We found that successful agile adoption needs tailoring, rather than predefined complex frameworks. Lessons learned are provided to facilitate transfer to other settings.
