For many years, there were two major approaches for structuring Information Technology (IT) development projects – traditional waterfall or iterative development. In the last few years, however, new approaches have surfaced that fall under the general category of “light” methodologies. Calling them methodologies is probably too broad a word. It might be better to refer to them as development approaches, or even philosophies. The purpose of this session is to provide an overview of the terminology and concepts of light methodologies, using Agile, Scrum, and Extreme Programming as examples.
