Abstract

Adoption of methodologies that generally come under the umbrella of "Agile" in
the software development community includes consideration of how those adopting
Agile methods interface with elements of the acquisition community who provide
the requirements and other constraints that govern how the software part of a
system will be developed. Several Agile methods have expectations about how
requirements are handled that are different from the typical approach used in
government acquisition settings. This qualitative research study from the
Software Engineering Institute explores issues that practitioners in the field
who are actively adopting Agile methods have identified in our interviews about
their experience in defining and managing requirements.
