I’ve blogged and written more about the Agile Release Train topic more than most over the last year or two. Thats because for many enterprises, it is the next big step of agile enterprise maturity because it drives strategic alignment and institutionalizes product development flow.
In Scaling Software Agility, I had a chapter on the topic as well. A few years have passed since I wrote that book, and the thinking and practices around the ART have advanced as well.
In the context of the upcoming book Agile Software Requirements: Lean Requirements Practices for Teams, Programs and the Enterprise, I’ve had the opportunity (and need) to update the description and to integrate it more directly to agile requirements management, the Big Picture and product development flow. I thought it was a good draft chapter to share for a while prior to publication, so I’ve posted it here.
