In this study, we adapted the agile approach to teaching. Students took an idea from inception, through the first and second agile project management iterations, and incorporated feedback from their classmates in between. The goal was to demonstrate through a flexible process how products/services can be improved. We started with the practice and followed up with the theory. The results and metrics were positive in terms of the outcomes that the agile project management approach intends to produce. There was a clear enhancement to the product/service measured value (along 3 metrics) in the second iteration. We describe herein the context, the process, the tool used, and the results and we conclude with a small discussion on the limitations of the study.
