Example text

Sceptics sometimes wrongly criticise Agile projects for not defining what is going to be delivered up front. They think that an Agile project delivers ‘something’ within a time frame and that the development team ‘make it up’ as they go along – these are incorrect assumptions. 3) there are ‘Feasibility’ and ‘Foundation’ stages. These need to be short enough to be accurate and simple enough to be changed effectively and without huge overspend. At this stage, any estimates have higher uncertainty and thus are often provided using a range or with contingencies and the associated costs.

Complicated domain In this domain, the relationship between cause and effect becomes less obvious; however, after a period of analysis it should generally be possible to come up with a defined approach and plan. Such a plan will normally include contingency to take into account the fact that the analysis may be flawed by a certain amount. Again, the Waterfall model is suitable for this environment as there is an element of definition up front; however, a more empirical process, like Agile, may be more suited.

If an Agile project is initiated, then high-level baseline definitions of the product and plans will be required; however, these are purposefully left at a high level as it is assumed that things will change as more is understood about the product. Agile isn’t ‘just do it’; there is significant planning and re-planning involved when required.
