Design on a diet for agile teams
Transcript of Design on a diet for agile teams
Create living design documents
Rich text documents with embedded design links
Add to any design project
Keep current as designs change
Live Design Documents
Agile scaling factors: needs for a more disciplined approach
Quickly search across all of your organizations designs on the server for learning, review, analysis, or to identify potential reuse
Search directly on the server; no need to load designs into a client first
Simple full text search over model content (name, description, type)
Powerful query based searching
Learn from the past
Dashboards provide an easy way to stay connected with design activities
Design comments, recent links, most active, design reviews, design changes
Create mashup dashboards with viewlets from across the application lifecycle
Everyone stays connected
Many teams have adopted a similar development lifecycle, including our Jazz Design Management development team.
Typical agile development lifecycle (Scrum)
According to agile best practices, there is no architecture in Agile projects.
Would you develop a software-intensive system without thinking?
Your work environment - Raise your hand if….
Proactively respond to gaps as they surface throughout the project
Issues are quickly highlighted and resolved
Different views available
Teams have visibility into coverage & completeness
Development & testing – Why design helps?
Sketches for ideation and problem solving
“A picture is worth a thousand words”
Design tasks for complex user stories
Design “in a flash”
Communicate design to team
Design activities intertwined with development activities
Look at design for code development
Look at design for test scripting
Various levels of automation possible
Reduce technical debt
Capture design decisions for reuse, revisiting, …
Understand impact of change
Design to support iterative development
does not mean no architectural
Architecture & design is the responsibility of the whole team
Design activities does not necessarily imply models or documentation
Architecture and Agile: a contradiction?
1- Agility at scale, ALM, and Architecture & Design
2- Design and Backlog management
3- Design and Sprint planning
4- Design and Iterative development
Sprint planning – Why design helps?
Assess technical feasibility of requirements
Explore design alternatives
Leverage guidance and past decisions when possible
Identify tasks to implement stories
Evaluate development effort based on:
Lessons learned from the previous sprints or projects
Potentially reusable assets
Design information for Sprint planning
Backlog ranking – Why design helps?
Experimented Product Owners know that business value is not the only factor
--> Take into account design information for ranking based on:
Design information helps uncover technical risks and dependencies
Complex items sometimes require a design feature team to be assigned to design scenarios and break down features

Design on a Diet!
A Lightweight Design Process
New* Architecture Decision Knowledge
Architecture Decision support (ADK)
Simple way to manage information about architecture/design issues and decisions
Other users can benefit from the decision making process
Leverage past decisions, understand rationale
Impact analysis helps to identify decisions for specific issues
Can convert individual shapes
and connections into formal
Informal expressions can
seed the content for formal
Generating or creating formal models from the informal expressions
Increase team knowledge through an enterprise-wide software design repository
Scenario designers, analysts, architects, developers, testers, and other extended team members can access designs through a Web client
Design Management supports working as a Team
Source: Succeeding with Agile, M. Cohn, 2007
Agile architecture is about finding the right balance between “anticipation” and “adaptation”
Evolving and emergent design
Some key architectural activities your team can’t ignore, whether you are “Agile” or not:
Define the approach for developing the system
Identify key best practices & patterns to leverage
Drive technical decisions
Identify the appropriate technical components too meet:
Non-functional requirements (availability, security, performance…)
Define the structure of the system (runtime and deployment)
Continuously validate architectural consistency
Continuously communicate with all stakeholders (wherever they may be located)
Continuously validate against (possibly volatile) requirements

Some of the architectural and design expressions we use for architecture envisioning/backlog prioritization/understanding
Design management is a team effort
Everyone contributes to design information
Everyone leverages information in designs
Design needs to be integrated in lifecycle, not external
Design information is useful throughout the ALM cycle
Defect / incidents
Reduce technical debt
Requirements, design, quality, and change management
Focus on activities useful for the whole lifecycle
Agile Architecture and Design in ALM:
A team approach to design management
Generate Model from
JAX-RS based Web Service
Generate JAX-RS based
Web Service from Model
Automation: e.g. Model RESTful Services and Generate JAX-RS Based Web Services

Information regarding potential future products is intended to outline our general product direction and it should not be relied on in making a purchasing decision.

Information about potential future products may not be incorporated into any contract. The development, release, and timing of any future features or functionality described for our products remains at our sole discretion.
Performance is based on measurements and projections using standard IBM benchmarks in a controlled environment. The actual throughput or performance that any user will experience will vary depending upon many factors, including considerations such as the amount of multiprogramming in the user’s job stream, the I/O configuration, the storage configuration, and the workload processed. Therefore, no assurance can be given that an individual user will achieve results similar to those stated here.
Please note the following
Jean-Louis (JL) Marechaux
Agile thought leaders recommend agile architecture
« Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility. » - Agile Manifesto, principle #9
« The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams. » - Agile Manifesto, principle #11

Simplicity is essential
Design Management provides simple tools
Light design supports agile teams
Iterative development during Sprints
Everyone in the team creates and uses design information
Design evolves over time
Emergent design (done incrementally)
Intentional design (decision making process)
Some design aspects may be anticipated (envisioning)
-->Balance between anticipation and adaptation
Summary: Lightweight design process for agile teams
