Management of Technological Innovation
This paper is the individual research paper for ETM 549/649 class for the spring-2017 quarter. The topic I have chosen is: “An innovation concept that has not been discussed in class”, specifically, Agile approach in software development. Agile approach and methodologies spread quickly across the software development industry in the last two decades, and in fact, it is starting to gain contraction in other industries as well. As, it held the promises of flexibility, user value focus, quality of products, faster time to market, and increased innovativeness in building software systems. In this report, a literature review of agile was conducted; to find out how it is different from the classical waterfall approach and what shortcomings in that model agile addressed successfully that makes it so popular. The report also conducted a discussion of agile under a famous theory about how innovation is being created in organizations. Recommendations were offered at the end of the report
