Introducing agile development
These are a nicely presented introduction to agile development intended for beginners in this area.
An excellent short video that discusses factors to be considered in deciding if an agile development approach should be adopted.
User stories (*)
In this video, I explain how informal user stories can be used both as a general mechanism to get people to talk about their system requirements and more specifically in agile processes to describe system requirements.
This is a good summary of what’s good and bad about XP. I suspect the presenter has tried XP and has not had entirely positive experiences.
A good short video that introduces the practice of test-driven (test-first) development that first gained wide exposure when used in extreme programming.
Scrum 101: Part 3 – Scrum values;
This is a series of videos on the Scrum agile method. The presentation is a bit dull but it is a useful introduction to the approach. Parts 1 and 2 are the most helpful.
Scaling agile methods
This video (1 of 2) I introduce the difficulties that we encounter when we try to scale agile methods for use with large systems and across organizations.
In this video (2 of 2), I discuss some of the characteristics of large systems, such as brownfield development and complex procurement, and explain why agile methods have to be integrated with plan-based approaches to cope with these.
