This is a summary report on the work done in Cloud Software Program Work Package 2 (WP2) ―Lean Software Enterprise‖ during year 2010, under the task 2.2 ―Lean Enterprise Software Assessment‖. The goal has been on studying and experimenting how to assess the implementation of agile/lean methods within a software organization, especially for those largest, to check the results, reduce uncertainty and guide the next steps of the adoption of these methods.
During 2010 companies and research partners participating Cloud SW WP2, designed and applied different assessment models to their ongoing transformation process and shared their experiences in several workshops organized on outcoming topics.
This report summarizes the efforts, lessons learned and experiences collected on ―Lean Enterprise Software Assessment Model‖. Main efforts during 2010 have been focused on studying what to assess during the transformation process defining the key concerns and characteristics of the transformation, and on defining two initial proposals of assessment approaches: Agile and Lean Deployment Survey and F-Secure Team Health Barometer. Also, Agile Position System was used to assess the agility in one of the industrial partners.
It is expected that the work will continue during 2011 in the form of several pilot projects that aim to evolve and ―mature‖ a complete Lean Enterprise Software Assessment Model as the result of findings of the research efforts and of the repetitive usage of the different approaches.
