Description

Agile software development has been discussed in literature since the inception of the Manifesto for Agile Development. However, there is no unified perspective towards Agile development in the literature. Academics and practitioners see Agile methods as a philosophy, as collaboration and communication enhancer or as means to better business benefits. This study discusses the spectrum of perspectives that emerges when one analyses the literature on Agile methods and Agile Manifesto. The study presents example papers across the spectrum: literature that has taken an Avid perspective and treats Agile as a world-view, literature that emphasises Inclusive Agile methods and is not averse on method tailoring and literature which takes a Pragmatic perspective and seeks to maximise the benefits of Agile methods application.
