Monday, November 5 2002
Deadline for submission of position papers: Friday, October 7
Final notification of acceptance: Monday, October 10
Agile methods have rapidly gained acceptance in the corporate
environment specially at the developer's and team leader's levels.
However, to be accepted at the executive level, agile processes must
evolve to fulfill the needs of enterprises, and as such, they
must be able to solve issues like:
* Simultaneous satisfaction of multiple customer goals.
How are tradeoffs chosen? Who and how chooses the priorities
of the shared environment? etc.
* Development of an agile culture and practices that
support multiple concurrent projects.
What management and coordination activities and engineering
practices should be used? How should the organization be
trained to undergo this kind of development? How should
the supporting environment be set up? How should testing
and support be conducted? etc.
* Development, configuration management and release of
shared reusable components. What are specific architectural
and design patterns should be used? How should configuration
management should be conducted? How are reusable components
advertised and maintained? Who is responsible for shared
* Individual project release in a shared environment
with multiple dependencies. How do projects undergo development
and release their application to production in an
environment of multiple concurrent projects with
* How do agile projects interface to inter-dependent
non-agile projects in the enterprise?
The goal of this workshop is to understand and contrast how the
different enterprise-level agile processes in existence today
such as: Scrum, XBreed, XP@Scrum and Grizzly, solve these issues.
The attendants will self-organize to best address their interests
before the workshop starts but here are some suggested activities:
1) Conducting an examination of each enterprise-level
agile process and its practices.
2) Share Case studies for each agile process and discuss their
merits and/or faults
3) Analyze the similarities, differences, synergies and
misfits among different enterprise-level agile processes and practices.
4) discuss how to introduce enterprise-level agile
5) discuss how to justify enterprise-level agile methods in terms of ROI,
