In short, AM strives to find the “sweet spot” between too little and too much modeling. Because this sweet spot changes from project to project, you will need to tailor your application of AM each time. Agile Modeling Practices AM consists of a variety of core principles, secondary principles, core practices, and secondary practices, not to mention values. com). However, to give you an idea of what AM is about, here are the core practices: • Active Stakeholder Participation • Apply the Right Artifact(s) • Collective Ownership • Consider Testability • Create Several Models in Parallel • Create Simple Content • Depict Models Simply • Display Models Publicly • Iterate to Another Artifact • Model in Small Increments • Model with Others • Prove It with Code • Use the Simplest Tools The top 10 points to remember for AM are as follows: 10.

Functionality is prioritized, and a self-contained useful subset of functionality is delivered on a regular basis. Agility takes this idea further and puts additional emphasis on the ability to be able to change direction—and by “direction” I mean the direction in which business requirements are pulling us—while still moving at some speed toward our number one goal of a working software system. In order to move at speed, agile development approaches downplay the importance of nonsoftware deliverables to varying degrees, certainly when compared to very heavyweight, documentation-oriented processes like RUP or those used in many conventional software houses.

Often, but not necessarily, waterfall approaches to development are tied to heavyweight, highly formalized logical processes such as SSADM (to give one example). Planning therefore tends to focus on the timing of the analysis phase, the design phase, and so on. Iterative and incremental development approaches put the focus on delivering software at shorter intervals and gradually building up a full set of functionality over a period of time. Different approaches mandate different delivery timescales, but these are in general between a couple of weeks to 3 or 4 months.
