Abstract

We introduce, define, and elaborate on agile development methods and how quality information systems are created via the values and practices of people using agile approaches. Key differences among agile methods, the SDLC, and other development methodologies are covered and suggestions for improving quality in IS through agile methods are given. We recommend adopting the principles of agile methods, encouraging more education about the values of agile approaches, including more types of people in the development of agile systems; adopting agile methods for a variety of organizational cultures; and renaming agile methods to signify the value system inherent in the approach.
