Iterative and Incremental Development: A Brief History
June 2003 (vol. 36 no. 6)
pp. 47-56
Craig Larman, Valtech
Victor R. Basili, University of Maryland

Prominent software-engineering thought leaders from each succeeding decade supported IID practices, and many large projects used them successfully. These practices may have differed in their details, but all had a common theme— to avoid a single-pass sequential, document-driven, gated-step approach.
