Management of Technology Innovation
The software development methodologies like Scrum and eXtreme Programming (XP) are used in efficient development of software products. These methodologies follow some agile practices like communication, customer integration, feedback, collective ownership, simplicity, continual integration, daily scrum meetings, and iterative development. Further, innovation is the process which starts from conception of an idea and ends with successful development of the product. In this paper I would explain how each of the agile practices followed in Scrum and XP will support and enhance an innovation process. Thus, the agile practices which would be very handy for most of the software professionals can help them in participating in the innovation process. Various case examples will be presented in order to prove how the strengths of software development methodologies can be used to enhance innovation process.
