I get asked a lot for my version of an agile project template. I suppose everyone has their own version, but I like this one:
- 0.1 Charter
- 0.2 Architecture
- 0.3 Non-functional requirements
- 1, 2, 3 iterations for product development
- 0.4 Release buffer
- 4 Release
- 0.5 Tech Debt
Of course, this template can be scaled for more releases, etc. And, if there is legacy product, then there are going to be integration tests therewith. Thus, the 'release' might be a couple of iterations -- or even more -- to cover the full scope of release-to-production testing.
A bit about the nomenclature, which is pretty simple:
