Infer Value delivery Model is a lightweight approach combining project management principles with Agile Development methodologies to provide high quality cost effective solutions.
Infer employs PMI philosophy of project management with emphasis on Earned Value Management integrated with eXtreme Programming(XP) principles.
Most software development methods, including Agile Methods, have a mechanism to measure progress to plan.But comparing actual cost with planned costs is simply measuring the "level of effort" consumed over a time period. This measurement does not describe the "value" delivered by the invested effort.
Why EVM & Agile?
End – End value tracking Budget and Time Scalability Project performance at any given time.
To address risks early in the development. Mechanisms to deliver value, incrementally.Prediction of next iterations effort.
