In this video, learn how Agile constraints are approached through empirical process controls.
- Agile projects, like all others, have to address … the triple constraints of time, cost, and scope. … As you know, Agile follows empirical process control … where we use inspection and adaptation … to manage our body of work, … but what does that look like? … Well, first, when a project is approved to move forward … a timeframe is defined for the completion of the effort, … and a cross-functional team is pulled together. … Remember, an Agile team is cross-functional, … meaning that everyone needed to complete the work … is allocated to the project 100%. … Since this is the case, … it's easy to calculate the cost of the effort. … For example, let's say Red 30 Tech company … decided to build a user web portal … and estimated it would take four months … to complete the work. … Red 30 Tech also pulled together an Agile team of people … at $50 per person per day. … The calculation, then, looks like this. … Five people times $50 a day equals $250 per day as cost. … A two-week sprint equals 10 days. …
