Potential Use of Agile Methods in Selected DoD Acquisitions: Requirements Development and Management
CARNEGIE-MELLON UNIV PITTSBURGH PA SOFTWARE ENGINEERING INST
Pagination or Media Count:
Adoption of methodologies that generally come under the umbrella of Agile in the software development community includes consideration of how those adopting agile methods interface with elements of the acquisition community who provide the requirements and other constraints that govern how the software part of a system will be developed. Several Agile methods have expectations about how requirements are handled that are different from the typical approach used in government acquisition settings. This qualitative research study from the Software Engineering Institute explores issues that practitioners in the field who are actively adopting Agile methods have identified in our interviews about their experience in defining and managing requirements.
