1. Do you have any list of successful projects done in agile development?
2. Does agile development fit for product development also ?

Regards,
Joshua

Hi Joshua,

I don't personally keep a list of successful projects--there are far too many to count. If you're interested in such things, take a look at the experience reports from the agile conferences. Wikipedia has a list of links at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agile_development#Experience_reports .

Agile is perfectly suitable for product development and internal development. I've used it successfully for both types. The main difference is where and how you get your on-site customers. We discuss this in our section on "Real Customer Involvement" in the book. Actually, we discuss five types of development:

  • Personal development
  • In-house custom development
  • Outsourced custom development
  • Vertical-market software
  • Horizontal-market software


  • Agile development is appropriate for all five.
