Are You Agile or Are You Fragile?
115 minutes, 53mb, recorded 2003-03-27
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 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).

This presentation is from the IT Conversations archives of the SDForum Distinguished Speaker Series.

Scott Ambler is leading exponent of Agile Modeling (AM) methodologies. He is the author of many books on software architecture and process, and a columnist for Software Development magazine. His most recent book is "Agile Modeling: Effective Practices for Extreme Programming and the Unified Process."
