  • Abstract

    Adoption of methodologies that generally come under the umbrella of "Agile" in
    the software development community includes consideration of how those adopting
    Agile methods interface with elements of the acquisition community who provide
    the requirements and other constraints that govern how the software part of a
    system will be developed. Several Agile methods have expectations about how
    requirements are handled that are different from the typical approach used in
    government acquisition settings. This qualitative research study from the
    Software Engineering Institute explores issues that practitioners in the field
    who are actively adopting Agile methods have identified in our interviews about
    their experience in defining and managing requirements.
