Speaker Meeting: Phyllis Marbach, Principles for Agile Development

El Segundo , USA
The Aerospace Corp., D8/1010, 200 N Aviation Blvd.

RSVP by 17 February.

Abstract: The Manifesto for Agile Software Development [Beck 2001] and the Principles behind the Agile Manifesto were written specifically for software development teams. Since the manifesto does not appear to apply to systems or large programs with multiple teams of development, how it applies to systems engineers is not apparent. The Principles for Agile Development are recommended for cross-functional teams that include Systems and Software Engineers working on customer “pull” projects to produce software products. These principles provide a foundation for the working relationship across the teams. We believe these principles apply to programs that include both hardware development and software development; however, we limit our examples to software intensive development for this discussion. As we strive to produce products more affordably in this ever-increasing, global marketplace adopting these principles will serve as a foundation for working together to develop high-value capabilities incrementally.
