Evolutionary (Evo) Planning is designed to continuously improve our efficiency and effectiveness, not wasting time on things that nobody will need and making sure that we will finish any endeavors ever more successfully in the shortest possible time.
We organize our work on several levels:
These elements together make our individual work more predictable, and subsequently our projects sufficiently predictable.
On the following pages, we will gradually add more detail about these Evo Planning elements.
Find a more detailed explanation e.g. in Booklet#2 ("How Quality is Assured by Evolutiopnary Methods") and
Booklet#7 ("Evolutionary Planning - How to Achieve the Most Important Requirement")
(see Booklets on the downloads page)
* We use the word 'Cycle' because we are applying the Plan-Do-Check-Act or Deming-Cycle for continuous improvement. There are many more possible cycles, like: iteration-, sprint-, release-, maintenance-, organization- (see figure), strategy-, roadmap-, or whatever other useful cycle. Of course you can use any cycle, as long as you keep checking the real usefulness for your project.
