  • Description: Describes how Agile methods can reduce iteration time while increasing delivered value for small-scale software development projects.


This information sheet describes the SEI Value-Driven Incremental Development (VDID) project, whose objective is to create quantitative engineering techniques to support rapid delivery of high-value, high-quality software capabilities to users. Managing agility and rapid development at scale means managing sustainable software delivery, resolving the tensions of decision making based on short- and long-term perspectives, and meeting productivity goals. To address this, the VDID project investigates how quality attribute requirement slicing and dependency analysis inform the incremental development and assurance of a system.
