Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V)

Centeva's proven agile IV&V expertise aids Federal agencies in finding gaps and creating efficient solutions.

Many Federal Government organizations have a requirement to perform independent verification and validation (IV&V) of software development projects for the purpose of risk mitigation and scope compliance. As more Federal agencies move towards Agile, they will need to devise Agile appropriate methods for evaluating Agile teams and contractors for process performance and project risk identification.

Organization Obstacle

Traditional approaches to IV&V are heavily biased towards waterfall and traditional SDLC artifacts and do not work well within an Agile environment. Agile has their own process specific risks and issues that need to be evaluated uniquely. The document-centric approach that has traditionally been used is inappropriate and ineffective for Agile teams as it does not find the right risks and does not find them early enough in the development process.
