Sample text

In Fig. 4 we see the typical Sprint rhythm of initiating, planning, and execution of agile Sprints during the agile development process. Again, the length of the Sprints is dependent on the program/project, the complexity of the software, total duration, and team membership. The duration of the Sprints is not relevant to this discussion. One of the big advantages to agile development is due to the adaptive nature of the Sprints. If a problem is discovered it can be rolled into the next and subsequent Sprint planning sessions and rolled into the schedules and does not require a major replan of the entire project, the way it does in classical development.

This program/project development cycle has been used for many decades. Requirements are allocated and/or derived, program plans are made, budgets and schedules established, and you march forward. For this development cycle, change is bad, for it causes rework of the entire development cycle, driving up cost and schedule. And, the farther into the development cycle you are when you discover problems, or changes happen (new or changing requirements), the costlier they are to “fix” both from a cost and schedule perspective.
