I thought that the topic would be new to me - and then I read the intro to the book. The topic is not new - it is something that every seasoned developer has to deal with. But the method is new to me. It seems that it encompasses many of the things that I already do - but I am interested in learning more about the method. Welcome!

Thanks David,

I'm glad to hear that you're already doing a lot of this stuff.

Working with brownfield development is not like anything else but I somehow find it very pleasing anyway. Especially when I can remove a lot of code. :-D

I am sorry for the dumb question, but what does Mikado method provides over regular agile processes like scrum?

Ananth --

The Mikado Method fits inside other processes, e.g Scrum, and you can use it several times within one sprint for example. In other words, you use it in conjunction with other process.

As a side note: You can use the Mikado Method for restructuring software but you can use it to guide development of new features as well. I do that a lot too.

It offers several benefits, one of the more compelling from a team process perspective is the visual 'map' you get. That can be used to sync teams over time and space.
