Agile Methods are creating a buzz in the software development community and have recently gained widespread popularity. Agile Methods are a reaction to traditional ways of developing software and acknowledge the need for an alternative to documentation driven, heavyweight software development processes. Industry and technology move too fast, requirements change at rates that swamp traditional methods and customers have become increasingly unable to definitively state their needs up front while, at the same time, expecting more from their software. As a result, several consultants have independently developed methods and practices to respond to the inevitable change they were experiencing. These Agile Methods are actually a collection of different techniques (or practices) that share the same values and basic principles.

The purpose of this conference was to address this interest and provide a comprehensive overview of the current State-of-the-Art, as well as State-of-the-Practice, for Agile Methods.
