Agile Unified Process

Agile Unified Process





The Agile Unified Process, or Agile UP, is an ultra-lightweight variant of the Unified Process
(UP) which was developed by Grady Booch, James Rumbaugh and Ivar Jacobson ~ and is
marketed by IBM Rational as the Rational Unified Process (RUP). UP is an extensive
process framework that can be applied to a very wide range of projects and is then adapted
to the requirements of each individual project. (http://www.radtac.co.uk/pdf/AUP.pdf)

Philosophies

The Agile UP is based on the following philosophies:

1. Your staff knows what they're doing. People aren't going to read detailed process documentation, but they will want some high-level guidance and/or training from time to time. The AUP product provides links to many of the details, if you're interested, but doesn't force them upon you.

2. Simplicity. Everything is described concisely using a handful of pages, not thousands of them.

3. Agility. The Agile UP conforms to the values and principles of the agile software development and the Agile Alliance.

4. Focus on high-value activities. The focus is on the activities which actually count, not every possible thing that could happen to you on a project.

5. Tool independence. You can use any toolset that you want with the Agile UP. The recommendation is that you use the tools which are best suited for the job, which are often simple tools or even open source tools.

6. You'll want to tailor the AUP to meet your own needs.
