The Impact of Agile Principles on Market-Driven Software Product Development
Responsible organisation
2010 (English)In: Software Process: Improvement and Practice, ISSN 1077-4866, E-ISSN 1099-1670, Vol. 22, no 1, 53-80 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Agile development methods such as XP, SCRUM, Lean Software Development and others have gained much popularity during the last years. Agile methodologies promise faster time-to-market, satisfied customers and high quality software. While these prospects are appealing, the suitability of agile practices to different domains and business contexts still remains unclear. In this paper we investigate the applicability of agile principles in the context of market-driven software product development (MDPD), focusing on pre-project activities. This paper presents results of a comparison between typical properties of agile methods to the needs of MDPD, as well as findings of a case study conducted at Ericsson, an early adopter of agile product development. The results show misalignment between the agile principles and needs of pre-project activities in market-driven development. This misalignment threatens to subtract from the positive aspects of agile development, but maybe more importantly, threaten the overall product development by disabling effective product management.
