Agile development methods and CMMI best practices are often perceived to be at odds with each other. If these perceptions or their causes are not resolved, we are likely to see more confusion and conflict as the adoption of each increases. In the long term, this situation is not healthy for the software engineering profession.
Why the discord between Agile and CMMI camps? The purpose of this talk is to clarify why the discord need not exist and to inform the software community about how agile methods and CMMI can dramatically improve business performance when properly used together.
