Abstract

Regarding the proven benefits of agile software development, more and more practitioners are becoming interested in agile methods and have to deal with the complexity and costs of the adoption process. In this context, agile experts argue that prior to any agile method or practice adoption, its relevance to the organization and team should be evaluated to avoid unnecessary implementation efforts and resources. The goal of this research is to investigate a context-driven approach for guiding agile methods adoption: starting from the characterization of the context properties, the approach helps to identify relevant practices and to recommend process customization using adequate rules. The focus in this paper will be on the agile context characterization using relevant, reusable and measurable elements structured in a context metamodel. A purposely simple instantiation is proposed to illustrate how customization rules would be inferred from the context characterization.
