      Agile Processes Workshop II—Managing Multiple Concurrent Agile Projects
      Monday, November 5 2002
      Seattle, Washington

      Deadline for submission of position papers: Friday, October 7
      Final notification of acceptance: Monday, October 10

      Introduction
      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
      resources? etc.

      * 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
      dependencies? etc.

      * 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
      methods,
      5) discuss how to justify enterprise-level agile methods in terms of ROI,
      etc.
