We were one of the first users of eXtreme Programming, long before Scrum was around and presented that early work in 2003, " Making Agile Development Work in a Government Contracting Environment, Measuring velocity with Earned Value." . Define the risks - reducible and irreducible - to each Capability and their Features. What is the Value at Risk for your Project? If your Value at Risk is low, then all this is not likely to be of concern. Irreducible Schedule Risk.
