Description

Agile development arose in the 1990s as a response to the rigid plan-driven approach used by large teams in government and aerospace systems. Agile provided an alternative that was leaner and better suited to smaller teams, with an emphasis on the product itself rather than the design and documentation. Since then, Agile has become very popular, even though it may not always apply to the intended environment.  Consider the following questions:  What are the benefits and challenges of adopting Agile? What is “velocity” in Agile? How should it be utilized? What are the organizational-level impacts to companies that undergo Agile transformation? Have you experienced teams that use Agile? What are the current trends in Agile adoption and usage?   Write an analysis paper that addresses these questions and provides the latest research in the field. Include two peer-reviewed citations to bolster your findings.
