Part 2. Functional Agile ALM – Agile ALM: Lightweight tools and Agile strategies

Part 2. Functional Agile ALM

Part 2 of this book focuses on the functional aspects of Agile ALM by discussing (functional) release management and task-based development.

Chapter 3 covers the functional release management aspect of Agile ALM. It details how to implement the general management framework, Scrum, and how to bridge Scrum to more traditional environments. It also details strategies and tools that support the functional releasing of software.

Chapter 4 is dedicated to task-based development. We’ll track changes by linking requirements to software artifacts throughout the complete development process. After you’ve learned the necessary prerequisites, we’ll explore example toolchains that help to implement this strategy.

Once you’ve finished this part of the book, we can leave the functional, high-level aspects of Agile ALM and focus on its more technical aspects.
