I have dodged the draft in my time (those were the days), but I see value in certain types of defense today. In particular when it comes to defending Agile and good software development practices.
Here are three US Department of Defense documents (declassified, no need to worry) that aim to do just this:
A guide to detecting software projects that are simply waterfall in agile clothing vs those that are truly Agile.
“Ten Commandments of Software” – the right tools and methods for different types of software.
The DoD’s proposed metrics to track software program performance and drive improvement in cost, schedule, and performance.
Make sure no one on your teams gets court-martialed over their software delivery practices!
Have a great weekend,
