Agility Performance Framework: A Formalized Framework for Education & Quicker Adoption

Agility Performance Framework: A formalized framework for education & quicker adoption - By Vineet Harbhajanka, Sponsored by Thoughtworks, Abercrombie & Fitch and Gap Inc.

The application of agile software development is primarily an art. Not only is the performance of successive iterations difficult to compare, the results of agile adoption case studies are also difficult to compare as they vary in the levels of application of agile methodology (most use only a subset of agile practices). We formalize the customer-driven integrated 'Agility Performance Framework' and illustrate its performance-based utility in a) facilitating better negotiation between the client and the development team by bringing justification through traceability of decisions, b) identifying key performance indicators for better prioritization and status, c) understanding the sources of performance deficiency and managing variability and d) building a more standardized profile to compare across iterations and projects to help learn from history.
We claim that the framework and continuous measurements of explicit metrics with feedback makes software development 'leaner', resulting in a higher business value delivery and reduced risk. We illustrate the application of the framework on an in-house project and identify lessons learned from it. Also we use the framework to profile projects from a partner organization allowing comparisons and aiding in the decision making process. This helps substantiate the applicability and completeness of the framework. Click here for poster
