Selling the Agile Concept to Customers

Ben Carey’s written a terrific post inspired from the “Advances in Agile” session he had at PDC.   Ben gives some great insight on how to deal with Statements of Work (SOWs) and companies which budget for Big UpFront Design (BUFD) or alternatively Big Design Up Front (BDUF).  Check out his thoughts on how to deal with this.

For an alternative view, read Joel Spolsky’s opinion of doing BDUF.  Alternatively to Joel’s alternative, these folks say Joel’s not doing BDUF, he’s doing EDUF (Enough Design Up Front).
