People Factors in Agile Software Development and Project Management
With the increasing popularity of Agile Methods, many software organisations are moving away from traditional methods to adopt Agile development methodologies. Instead of being predictive, Agile is rather adaptive and people-focused. It advocates a small and collaborative team that work closely together. But team size is a factor that is in turn constrained by people factors. When implementing Agile, these key factors are often overlooked. This paper aims at identifying the underlying people factors to consider when adopting Agile for a team to be effective.
