The Agile Dilemma

voke defines the "Agile Dilemma" as the inherent risk and confusion created by the business desire for speed and flexibility misinterpreted as a mandate to participate in the developer-centric movement called Agile, which may not be appropriate for all organizations or projects.

Do you know the impact of defects and rework on your projects?   

voke_brief_cost_of_rework-mThe concept of the Cost of Quality, that is, the cost of rework to remove defects, is that the later in the lifecycle a defect is identified, the more expensive it is to resolve the issue. With its shift in requirements ownership from the business to developers who will discover requirements through changes to the source code, the Agile movement is effectively pushing requirements definition to later in the lifecycle. Applying models for the cost of rework to Agile projects reveals the hidden costs of the late definition of requirements.
voke's Strategic Brief on the Cost of Rework for Agile and Non-Agile Projects provides economic models for evaluating project results and selecting the most appropriate practices.
