A Governance Framework for Adopting Agile Methodologies

Carine Khalil, Sabine Khalil
Abstract—Even though the number of agile adopters in software organizations keeps on growing, many challenges are still encountered during the integration of agile practices across software projects. Only few succeed in becoming agile especially when the organizational context is not aligned with agile philosophy and principles. There is an evident need for providing organizations with a governance framework that helps them address the decision-making environment throughout the adoption process of agile methodologies. This paper proposes a governance framework based on the IT governance model of Weill (2004). By defining agile decision domains as well as agile decision input and rights, the framework aims at assisting organizations in selecting the appropriate agile practices and aligning them with business objectives, project team needs in addition to the organizational infrastructure.

Index Terms—Agile adoption, agile key decisions, agile decision input and rights, IT governance framework.
