Adaptive Software Development
Adaptive Software Development (ASD) is targeted for software teams where competition creates extreme pressure on the delivery process. Many process improvement techniques (CMM, ISO) are focused on optimizing practices that involve steadily increasing rigor. In contrast, ASD emphasizes producing high-value results based on rapid adaptation to both external and internal events. Listen as Jim Highsmith explains how the focal point of ASD is fundamentally different from traditional software process improvement approaches. Learn why "a little bit less than just enough" is ASD's guideline for implementing rigor.
