Continued Business Justification Principle
Adaptive lifecycles are less or more different in the way they handle the justification of the project. They need to be justifiable like a predictive project, but:
- Forecasting the justification is harder, because the product is not fully specified upfront
- Tracking the justification is easier, because of the Frequent Releases
Stakeholders in predictive projects are sometimes so focused on the product that forget its expected outcomes and justification. This risk is automatically mitigated in Agile, because the product is not clear, and everyone has to shift focus to the business value.
