A Case Study in Retrospective Analysis of Release Planning in an Agile Project

Karlsson, Lena LU ; Thelin, Thomas LU and Regnell, Björn LU (2006) 1st Workshop on the Interplay of Requirements Engineering and Project Management in Software Projects (REProMan’05) In 1st Workshop on the Interplay of Requirements Engineering and Project Management in Software Projects (REProMan’05)
Abstract
This paper presents a case study evaluating a retrospective analysis method, aimed at improving the release planning activity in project management. The method is based on a re-evaluation of candidate requirements for prior releases in order to uncover release planning decisions that would have been made differently today. The method aims at using the lessons learned during the analysis to find improvement possibilities for the release planning in future projects. The release planning in the investigated project turned out as successful in the retrospective analysis.

This may be due to the in-house project type, as the

users in an in-house project are few and tangible, and

have more similar requirements,... (More)
This paper presents a case study evaluating a retrospective analysis method, aimed at improving the release planning activity in project management. The method is based on a re-evaluation of candidate requirements for prior releases in order to uncover release planning decisions that would have been made differently today. The method aims at using the lessons learned during the analysis to find improvement possibilities for the release planning in future projects. The release planning in the investigated project turned out as successful in the retrospective analysis.

This may be due to the in-house project type, as the

users in an in-house project are few and tangible, and

have more similar requirements, compared to in a marketdriven project. It may also be due to the iterative approach used during development as it provides possibilities of continual re-prioritisation of requirements. (Less)
