Agile approach has gained a considerable amount of attention in the software industry in the current economic atmosphere, however the adoption of an agile approach is not without its complications:
Why do some people go for agile approach, while the other people prefer to follow a standard process, framework and methodology? Which one should we choose? It really depends on whether the requirements of target system is predictable or not. If the requirements are tended to be predictable, to follow a well-defined process would be fine, or otherwise, if the project has high risk or when upfront requirements are hard to obtain, then an agile approach is more desirable.
Nowadays, requirements tended to be dynamic and might change quickly, and thus, an agile approach with flexible processes should be adopted in just-in-time and just-enough manner. We might need our process to be more agile and able to be customizable from time-to-time for different problems or situations. If this is the case, then it is recommended to use Just-in-Time process. It consists a gallery of work items and forms that allow you to design variant of process templates. You can simply drag & drop work items or forms for the inclusion of exclusion of works into the activities of a process needed to be touched up flexibly just-in-time.
Different projects might require specific combinations of agile tools, various situation or the nature of the problem. An agile development environment should also include a rich toolset for developers to flexibly adopt them at their own choices.
