Design-led & Design-less: One Experiment and Two Approaches [chapter]

Francisco Macias, Mike Holcombe, Marian Gheorghe
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The objective of the experiment was to assess extreme programming seen as a design-less process and an agile methodology based on design. The experiment ran in a real environment.  ...  The factors of the experiment were time, quality and size. The systems written by extreme programming teams were slightly better than "agile design-based" teams.  ...  We should also like to thank our clients who agreed work with our students on their problems. Macias thankfully acknowledges the support of CONACYT (Mexico).  ...
