We (at work) have been looking at introducing Agile as a devlopment process so I have been reading up. As ever wikipedia gives a good overview but I also liked this site which has a simple template for listing work
What I like about agile is the way that it integrates testing and specification into the build process – which is far more realistic with web development. I also think it helps deal efectively with the changing priorities of a small business with the constant process of re-loooking at the backlog.
For us the difficulty will be maintaining the discipline of the ‘timebox’ but at least this will give us a way of measuring the interuptions that we impose on the development team. Anyway – we shall see.
Also want to do some reading on the use of agile as a project management tool
