How can we optimize our SDLC to maximize demonstrable value to the business


by: Mike Harris & Tom Cagley

This report investigates how changes to the SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle) can improve the delivery of demonstrable value to the business.  We consider how we might measure “demonstrable value” in a way that the business will understand.  We review the theory of “Lean Software Engineering” and we suggest some ways that the theory can be applied to optimize different SDLC’s.  Finally, we discuss the importance of Value Visualization – requiring each story or requirement in the SDLC to have a demonstrable and highly visible set of business value criteria to drive tactical decision making.
