Defining Situational Characteristics for Situational Agile Method Engineering

Item Type Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)
Abstract

Rapidly changing customer demands, increasing competition and faster development cycles requires companies to build capabilities to adapt their product and services as well as their business models quickly. By using agile methods, companies are supported in adapting to these changes and to achieve competitiveness in volatile markets. However, agile “off-the-shelf”-methods bear the risk of not answering the challenges of specific business situations. Thus, the concept of situational method engineering was applied to agile methods, resulting in situational agile method engineering (SAME). For SAME to work, a description of situations is necessary, which allows to decide among different agile methods and method fragments. Thus, situational characteristics have been derived in a literature review and validated in focus group interviews resulting in a list of 5 relevant situational characteristics for SAME.
