Abstract

Current agile methods could benefit from using a more quantified approach across the entire implementation process (that is, throughout development, production, and delivery). The main benefits of adopting such an approach include improved communication of the requirements, and better support for feedback and progress tracking. This chapter first discusses the benefits of quantification, then outlines a proposed approach (Planguage), and finally describes an example of its successful use (a case study of the “Confirmit” product within a Norwegian organization, “FIRM”).
