What Is the Future of Agile Software Development?
So, what about the future? To the extent that the future business environment continues to be turbulent, I think rigorous cultures face a difficult challenge. No amount of process thinning or document pruning will make them AgileAgile is an attitude, a sense of how the world works in complex ways. However, to the extent that executives and managers still want the world to be predictable and plan-able, Agile cultures and ASDEs will be difficult to implement. In the final analysis, businesses gradually but inevitably gravitate to practices that make them successful, and ASDEs will increasingly contribute to successful software projects. Rigorous approaches will remain, but there will be many fewer companies using them five years from now.
