  • Making agile retrospectives more awesome

    Publication

    According to the textbook [23], Scrum exists only in its entirety, where every component is essential to Scrum’s success. However, in many organizational environments some of the components are omitted or modified in a way that is not aligned with the Scrum guidelines. Usually, such deviations result in missing the full benefits of Scrum [24]. Thereby, a Scrum process should be frequently inspected and any deviations should be...

  • Applying agiile practices to the development of safety-critical software

    Development of safety critical software is subjected to numerous restrictions and recommendations. To meet these requirements classical software development models (e.g. V-model) are usually applied. Agile methodologies, although rapidly increasing their popularity, were generally regarded as unsuitable for such projects. However, they offer potential benefits which provide a strong incentive to incorporate them into safety-critical...
