I am very familiar with your work. Thank you for responding. In fact your use case book "Writing Effective Use Cases" is standard for our organization (as a directive I made as CTO). We have had great success with it so 'thank you'! I attribute your work to part of how we were named by Forrester as a 'top software firm'. See: http://www.monetaire.com/about/pr9222003.asp . We had less people, funding and resources then our competitors in many cases. Yet we demolished them (to be blunt <grin>). It was a combination of Agile methods, your Use Case method and our extensive 'Metrics' and 'Risk Management' focus (at least that is what I believe).
Could I set up a conference call with Glen Alleman? There are still some issues I would respect his feedback on (as well as yours if you have the time to join).
I can be reached globally on 1-917-517-4010.
I am presenting at the 'Microsoft Financial Services Conference' (http://www.financialdevelopers.com/fsdevcon04.aspx) in April and I am consulting in CA for the next few weeks on .NET and XP, but I am free after that. I am based out of New York City.
I am also looking for leaders in our field such as yourself to add to discussions via dial-in for Columbia Computer Science classes at the Master's level. Are you interested?

There is nothing about using metrics and risk management that is against agile, in principle. The agile principles run orthogonal to those.
Glen Alleman is probably the most versed I know in incorporating both of these in an agile project.

My company is working on an 'Agile' process document that is unique
from any other 'line in the sand' methods I have seen (XP, Scrum,
etc.). We are interjecting Metrics and Risk Management as core
competencies and critical success factors in the process.
So does that make this a 'non-Agile process'? Or just a modified
Agile process? Have others done anything similar to what I am
describing and I am just not educated on it? We are almost done and I
am happy to post the results (in Word format) for this group if there
is interest. It is called 'Masdev' (at least for now).
