We're currently rebuilding a better GROWS™ Method. Please sign up using the form below to be notified when the new, improved GROWS is ready for you!

Grow Software and Skills with Experiments and Tracer Bullets

  • Predictable: enjoy the consistency of the Right Rhythm
  • Repeatable: relax in the engineering practices of the Right Way
  • Traceable: know you're supporting executive goals by building the Right Thing

What is GROWS?

The GROWS™ Method is a set of practices and approaches to integrate effective software development and learning within an organization. It's based on several key concepts:

  • skill stages model to guide personal and organizational growth and development
  • experiments that provide feedback loops to answer technical questions and drive practice adoption
  • inclusiveness to ensure that all parts of the organization work together
  • tracer-bullet style development to grow the software project in a steady, robust and responsive manner

Grow code, grow skill. Because if you're not growing, you're dying.

"I especially like the GROWS fixed-rate understanding of team velocity. I've used that idea on a project where I was able to show that given our task list and our current velocity (reported daily on a wall calendar), we needed help. We got it, and I was then able to show we were on track."
—Mike Bonar, Victoria, BC

"The themes that hit closest to home for me were aligning my work with Executive Vision/Initiatives, permitting Experimentation and tracking my growth through a Learning Journal. I recommend learning how the GROWS™ Method can help your team grow through the application of Agile and Lean methodologies and beyond."
—Harold Meder, RTP, NC

"Best presentation of the conference. Best articulation of the usefulness, right use, and limitations of agile."
—An Introduction to GROWS, Agile Development Conference East

"Spread this information to masses—this is what the real world needs"
—Zemira L, GROWS Tutorial
