The principles of Agile Software Development are known to most of us, but how we put them into action can be the tough challenge. At the second session I had on CreativITy at the Fontys school for Software Engineering in Venlo we discussed the possibilities to make Value the steering point within the project.
After a short recap on the previous session we started off with the dilemma we encounter in IT these days, talking about the classic Cost versus Risk model on which we use to steer our projects and where the money goes doesn’t work, value isn’t measured. Using the new insights in Agile development and Enterprise Architecture, value is one of the key points: where will the business benefit most.
During the last part of the session we discussed the new possibilities technology can offer to business values these days. How can we switch from servicing to innovation? Agile thinking sure helps here.
