Agile software development processes have shown positive impacts on cost, schedule, and customer satisfaction. However, most implementations of agile processes have been in smaller-scale, software-only environments. In March 2004, a group of researchers and practitioners addressed the implementation of agile processes into large systems engineering-based projects that rely on traditional development processes and artifacts. They identified three management challenge areas. Here, the authors discuss numerous ways in which to address them.
