An Agile Workflow « AvailAgility
I'm interested in these topics lately. Karl Scotland is examining a mix of kanban and agile. -- Rick Cogley | From the site: An Agile Workflow - A common topic of discussion around kanban is whether the workflows or stages in a kanban system are counter to the Agile principles of cross functional and collaborative teams. Its easy to talk about a feature going through the following flow in a kanban system:

Analysis –> Build –> Test –> Release

which I confess looks very waterfall-ish and I can understand why this can raise warning flags about the suitability of the kanban approach. This got me thinking about how best to express a typical agile-friendly workflow.

Agile Adoption Patterns at Agile & Lean Software Development by Richard Durnall
Excellent intro to the types of problems organizations hit when they try to go Agile. -- Rick Cogley

From the site -

Agile Adoption Patterns
Published by richard durnall on Feb 10th, 2007 in Coaching with No Comments

I find the patterns that emerge from repeated tasks really interesting. When I first started coaching teams there was no way I could give the team or the organisation any predictions about what they were about to go through. A few years later I find it’s a very different story. I’ve found that no matter the industry, city, size or culture of the organisation, things always break in a common order…

blog:Cogley - Agile Principles, Translated, with Some Commentary
To help my Japanese colleagues understand the concepts of Agile more easily, after the jump, I'll translate the principles into Japanese, under the original English from the Agile website. The Japanese translations and any mistakes therein are solely my responsibility. Further, I'll take the opportunity to comment on what I see as important in the principles. For instance, do the principles allow for or even demand a lazy, free-for-all approach? Can an inexperienced team do Agile effectively, or, is mentoring needed?

blog:Cogley - Online Project Management Solutions
Many people on Twitter ask for recommendations for a good online project management solution. There are many such web-based applications out there, and it really depends upon your needs and intended project approach - are you "agile", do you want to use "scrum" or "kanban", or are you PMI all the way. Do you want it SaaS, or self-hosted? Do you need time tracking? Should a wiki be integrated? The list goes on. My requirements to make it through the "first cut" are listed in the article.

Planning Poker
Effective estimation method.

From the site - How does Planning Poker® work? ... The idea behind Planning Poker is simple. Individual stories are presented for estimation. After a period of discussion, each participant chooses from his own deck the numbered card that represents his estimate of how much work is involved in the story under discussion. All estimates are kept private until each participant has chosen a card. At that time, all estimates are revealed and discussion can begin again.

Scott Ambler's Agile Project Planning Tips
Scott Ambler shares some Agile project planning tips. Good advice in here. --Rick Cogley

From the site - My goal with this article is to share good project planning practices which I find to work well in practice. A fundamental difference between agile project planning and traditional project planning is that agile project planning is very collaborative in nature: the team is responsible for planning, not just the project manager. In this article I discuss:

1. Scheduling Tips
* Iterations
2. Estimating Tips
3. People Management Tips
4. Agile Metrics Tips
5. Some Humor (Perhaps)
6. Training

Does Agile Development Work for Systems Integration? « SmoothSpan Blog
Can Agile be applied to systems integration projects? Yes and no. --Rick Cogley

From the site: Agile is not for everyone or every project. There are some requirements for it to be successful that fly in the face of a lot of the established norms for IT projects and implementations. That’s not to say you couldn’t use Agile for such projects, but unless everyone involved clearly understood the Agile requirements, it would not likely be an unsuccessful attempt.

What are these requirements?

Scrum works, even for non-development GIS projects | EdgeHopper
Some thoughts on using AGILE / SCRUM techniques for non-development projects. -- Rick Cogley

From the site: The other night, I was at a get together of some regional ArcGIS developers. They asked about Scrum and we started talking about the requirement that every iteration must produce some potentially shippable product increment. Being GIS folks, someone asked how you would apply that “rule” to non-development GIS projects. It made me sit back and think for a bit. So, out of curiosity, and to find out if anyone out there used an Agile approach to these types of projects, I searched Google using several appropriate search phrases. To my astonishment, I couldn’t find a single reference to anyone using Agile methods for non-development GIS Projects. In fact, most led me to very rigid, stepwise, waterfall approaches to GIS project management.
