Warren T. Jones, Ph.D., PE
Agile Methods are a reactionary response to the traditional methods of software engineering and its heavyweight processes. The Agile Manifesto captures the important aspects of this new movement citing the following as points of differentiation from traditional methods: valuing individuals and interaction over processes and tools; valuing working software over comprehensive documentation; valuing customer collaboration over contract negotiation; valuing responding to change over following a plan. This course provides an overview of agile origins and a discussion of some of the most popular methods as well as guidelines for when they might be appropriate. The content of this course consists of a DOD Data & Analysis Center for Software (DACS) report. Pointers to resources for further study are given.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
