Scaling is still hot topic

Scaling Scrum is still a hot topic and we believe that the real Scrum Scaling is LeSS – Large Scale Scrum. We are happy that two top Certified LeSS Trainers are joining Agile Prague Conference - Jurgen De Smet and Wolfgang Richter. There’s one LeSS case study as well presented by Karel Smutny and workshop facilitated by Alexey Krivitsky.

If you are interested in scaling or you are from a big organization Agile Prague is definitely the place to come and get hands-on information about Scrum Scaling.

An Agile Model-Driven Approach - A case study

This case study describes the introduction of a Model Driven Development (MDD) approach in a large global financial services software company with a conservative culture and high time-to-market constraints. By the application of agile and lean principles on model-driven development, we produced an agile MDD approach for constructing a new architecture. The main point is to show how lean and agile principles helped us with producing a solution, with a short implementation phase. In that way we coped successfully with the management constraints, achieving the implementation within the given time-frame. Our Agile MDD approach is based on the general Model-Driven Architecture idea but is shaped with the lean and agile principles. It resulted in a simple, but not simplistic, architecture with a single modeling level. The model is designed by reverse engineering of the legacy code in a Test Driven Development (TDD) fashion. The TDD logic improved the development efficiency and decreased the total time spent on the development and testing. We got a simple and applicable solution with a new methodology that is successfully applied on two industry projects by now.
