Are you Ready for Iterative Development?

This video discusses what’s required to ensure your team is ready for iterative development.

terative development is simple in concept: it is simply breaking a large project down into a series of smaller projects that deliver value in smaller steps. The hard thing about adopting it is that it requires the project team members and stakeholders to adopt a new set of attitudes and behaviors about how they work together to achieve a common goal. This requires subtle but significant changes on the part of all participants, especially if they have been working on conventional projects for many years.

With new attitudes in place, the adoption of iterative development practices becomes easier. If the project team and stakeholders have the wrong attitudes toward iteration the early iterations are more likely to produce personal friction than project progress, in some cases generating enough opposition to prevent the project from being able to produce effective results.
