EmployID is defining its agile project management methodology

With now almost five months after the start of the project and its "contextual investigation phase" in full swing, EmployID is preparing for adopting a more structured approach to its agile project management approach. While there are plenty of materials and experiences with agile project management and agile development for customer projects, little consideration has been given to the specific nature of multi-disciplinary, multi-national research projects. While Scrum as an agile project management methodology seems appropriate to address the challenges, its basic assumptions are not easy to meet in such a setting. Therefore we have started to adapt the methodology to large-scale research projects, also based on experiences that have been collected as part of earlier projects, such as the MATURE project.
