Agile Architecture

A key practice in Scrum is to deliver small slices of functionality each Sprint. These slices need to encompass every layer of a system, from what the customer sees to the darkest corners of the backend. This even includes the architecture itself. For architects used to working in a waterfall context this can seem impossible. “How can you develop architecture piece-by-piece? The entire purpose of architecture is to design the way the whole system hangs together. You can’t do that in iterations.”

It takes a change in mindset to do it, but Agile Architecture speeds-up development and innovation. The co-creator of Scrum, Jeff Sutherland, and the founder of Team WIKISPEED, Joe Justice, two of the industry’s thought leaders in this area, explain how it all works in this on-line course.
