Main Article Content

Waraporn Jirapanthong


We advocate the fact that the standard for software development should be established in an organisation, since the dynamic of software development projects leads more error-prone and time consuming. The standard is expected to reduce the difficulties of development activities, in particular, analysis and design. This research is aimed to apply the standard ISO/IEC 29110 and agile method. The standard is studied and the supporting tools are analyzed. The good practice of applying the standard ISO/IEC 29110 with agile practice is purposed. A sample group of software development teams is created and coached according to our approach. Then, the sample group works on their own software development projects based on the purposed good practice. The questionnaire is given to the group in order to collect the feedback and comments on the approach. Based on the results of questionnaire, it shows that software development teams are satisfied with the approach, especially, in the term of requirements tracking, responding time to customers, and change management with 4.73, 4.52, and 4.33 out of 5, respectively.
