Disciplined Agility as a Strategic Enabler Capability for Facilitating Internal Organizational Changes Using the Synergy between SEI-TSP/PSP and Agile Methodologies

ABSTRACT The synergy between the disciplined (i.e. plan-driven) and agile (i.e. adaptive) approaches can achieve results that exceed any one of them separately in software development. In this paper, we focus on how introducing the disciplined agility approach called “SEI-Team Software Process” in MiniMax Software helped the company deals with the transitions between different stages in the internal learning and development change. Major stages, their discovered challenges, the needed methodological shifts and achieved breakthrough improvements in each stage will be explained. This development cycle can be summarized into three major stages. Summary of achievements per stage will be presented as well as a cross-stages analysis to illustrate the impact of these transitions and changes.
