Ten Great Practices Learned from Open Source Projects

Mik Kersten, Tasktop

Open source development combines distributed teams, resource constraints, and an overload of end user input. Despite these challenges, the velocity of many popular open source projects is measurably higher than that of their enterprise counterparts. The time has come to take the lessons learned from open source and adapt them to enterprise agile. Mik Kersten begins with an examination of successful open source projects and their approaches to agile delivery. Then he reviews the overlap of open source approaches and agile methods, identifying ten great practices that agile practitioners can apply to improve their collaboration and productivity. Each practice is grounded in empirical data that Mik collected from public open source websites. To provide an intuitive appreciation for the open style of agile delivery, Mik illustrates with graphics and visual aids how open source collaboration evolves and grows over time. Learn novel strategies for connecting the lean/agile methodologies and open source development for your large-scale enterprise project.
