Sample text

To understand AM you need to understand the difference between a model and an agile model. A model is an abstraction that describes one or more aspects of a problem or a potential solution addressing a problem. Traditionally, models are thought of as zero or more diagrams plus any corresponding documentation. However, non-visual artifacts such as collections of CRC cards, a textual description of one or more business rules, or the structured English description of a business process are also considered models.

Embrace Change Accept the fact that change happens. Revel in it. Change is one of the things that make software development exciting. Requirements evolve over time. Your project stakeholders’ understanding of their requirements changes over time. Project stakeholders can change as your project moves forward, new people are added, and existing ones leave. Project stakeholders can change their viewpoints as well, potentially changing the goals and success criteria for your effort. Furthermore, your business and technological environments change as your project evolves; things occur that are often beyond the scope of your control.

An architecture model helps to solidify the vision to which your 72244_CH01I 2/27/02 11:06 AM Page 15 Introduction project team is working, which clearly has value. But, if the costs of that model outweigh the benefits, then it no longer provides positive value. Perhaps it was unwise to invest $100,000 developing a detailed and heavily documented architecture model when a $5,000 investment resulting in whiteboard diagrams that you took digital snapshots of would have done the job. Agile models are as simple as possible.
