  • What is agile software development?
  • Two agile methods
    • Scrum
      • For process management
    • Extreme programming (XP)
      • For coding
  • Conclusion
manifesto for agile software development

Agile Software Development

Rapid, incremental delivery of software

Manifesto for Agile Software Development
  • A statement of values
    • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
    • Working software over comprehensive documentation
    • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
    • Responding to change over following a plan

  • What is agile software development?
  • Two agile methods
    • Scrum
      • For process management
    • Extreme programming (XP)
      • For coding

Agile Methods


Extreme programming (XP)

Adaptive software development (ASD)

Dynamic system development method (DSDM)

Feature driven development (FDD)

Lean software development (LSD)




requirements churn
Requirements Churn
  • Requirements churn
    • During a project the customers can change their minds about what they want and need
  • Software development is an empirical, unpredictable and non-repeatable process

Frederick P. Brooks, The Mythical Man-Month: Essays on Software Engineering, 1975

  • An agile, lightweight software development framework
  • Scrum was intended to be for management of software development projects
    • Accepting that the problem cannot be fully understood or defined
    • Focusing instead on maximizing the team's ability to deliver quickly and respond to emerging requirements
definition of scrum
Definition of Scrum
  • 橄欖球Rugby術語:前鋒對陣爭球
  • A scrum is a way to restart the game after an interruption
    • The forwards of each side come together in a tight formation and struggle to gain possession of the ball when it is tossed in among them

Waterfall Model vs. Scrum





Rather than doing all of one thing at a time...


...Scrum teams do a little of everything all the time


the scrum framework


  • Sprint
  • Sprint planning
  • Daily scrum
  • Sprint demo
  • Sprint retrospective
The Scrum Framework



  • Product owner
  • Scrum master
  • Team
  • Product backlog
  • Sprint backlog
  • Burndown chart
role product owner

As a user, I want to cancel a reservation, so that I don’t have to pay for a room I won’t use.

Role: Product Owner
  • Provide product vision
  • Define the features of the product as items in the product backlog
    • Each item is a user story
      • A short, simple description of a feature told from the perspective of the person who desires the new capability, usually a user or customer of the system
  • Prioritize features according to business value
role scrum master
Role: Scrum Master
  • Act as the sheepdog for the team
    • Responsible for keeping the flock heading in the same direction and keeping the wolves away
  • Work with the management to remove impediments for the scrum team
  • Responsible for the scrum process
    • Ensure that the scrum team understands the scrum values, practices, and rules
role the team
Role: The Team
  • Turn product backlog items into increments of potentially shippable functionality every sprint
  • 5~9 members
  • Cross-functional
    • Team members must have all of the skills necessary to complete the selected product backlog items
time boxed activity sprint
Time-boxed Activity: Sprint
  • Scrum projects make progress in a series of “sprints”
    • 小步快跑 (iterations)
  • Product is designed, coded, and tested during the sprint
  • Ideally, selected work does not change during a Sprint
  • Typical duration is 2~4 weeks
    • A constant duration leads to a better rhythm


time boxed activity sprint planning


  • Define sprint goal
  • Analyze and select product backlog
  • Estimate sprint backlog in story points
  • Define time and place for the daily scrum
  • Determine sprint demo date
Time-boxed Activity: Sprint Planning
time boxed activity daily scrum meeting
Time-boxed Activity: Daily Scrum Meeting
  • Timeboxed at 15 minutes regardless of the team's size
  • All attendees should stand
    • The daily standup
  • Each team member answers three questions
    • What have you done since yesterday?
    • What are you planning to do by tomorrow?
    • Do you have any problems preventing you from accomplishing your goal?
  • Not for problem solving
  • Only the team can speak
a daily scrum
A Daily Scrum

Henrik Kniberg, Scrum and XP from the Trenches, InfoQ Enterprise Software, 2007 Development Series, 2007

time boxed activity sprint demo
Time-boxed Activity: Sprint Demo
  • All sprints end with a demo
  • Team presents what it accomplished during the sprint
    • …and not done
  • Informal collaboration
  • Invite stakeholders and management
  • No slides show
  • 4-hour time-box for one month sprints
time boxed activity sprint retrospective
Time-boxed Activity: Sprint Retrospective
  • Inspect how the last sprint went in regards to people, relationships, process and tools
  • Identify actionable improvement measures for the team to implement in the next sprint
  • 3-hour time-box for one month sprints
visual management make things obvious
Visual Management: Make Things Obvious
  • Sprint info page
  • Burndown chart
  • Wall-based taskboard
  • Defect trend chart
  • The system anatomy (Ericsson)
    • Showing the dependencies between capabilities in the system
burndown chart
Burndown Chart
  • A publicly displayed chart showing the number of tasks remaining for the current sprint
  • Agile software development
  • Agile methods
    • Scrum
      • For process management
    • Extreme programming (XP)
      • For coding
  • Conclusion
extreme programming xp
Extreme Programming (XP)
  • Coding is the key activity throughout a software product
  • XP is extreme because commonsense practices taken to extreme levels
xp is extreme
XP is Extreme
  • Since design is good, everybody will design daily
    • Refactoring
  • Since code reviews are good, review code all the time
    • Pair programming
  • Since testing is good, everybody will test all the time
    • Testing driven development (TDD)
  • Since integration testing is important, build andintegrate test several times a day
    • Continuous integration (CI)
  • Since simplicity is good, keep the system in the simplest design that supports its current functionality
