H.M. Haddad and O.M. Olagbegi (USA)


XP, agile development, and agile principles.


Extreme Programming (XP) has been gaining momentum in the software industry over the years. It is not clear whether the practice of XP helps organizations attain the benefits that agile development principles promise. This work takes a closer look at the actual benefits organizations aim to achieve from the practice of XP. The literature shows mixed results on the effectiveness of XP. Under this work, a selected set of case studies that address XP’s practical benefits to software development are analyzed. The analysis is based on a set of defined attributes that characterize the benefits stated by agile principles.
