Exception handling are one of the most difficult requirement because they are often encountered during production monitoring or incident tickets. In “rare” cases, this will be informed during project implementation. Often, such requirements are misleading and contains gaps to actual scenarios. Using Agile, you can easily adapt your system for exception handling.
Why Agile Fit Exception Handling
Agile strength is its ability to adapt to changes quickly. Exception scenarios belong to this category as users are not able to anticipate this process. Often, the exception are handled beyond the usual SOP (Standard Operating Procedures). Other exceptions may be caused by unusual incidents like natural disasters, accidents or event pandemic like COVID-19 in the real world.
Use Exception Handling with Agile
Like all organisations, waterfall approach remained the de facto financial and procurement guideline for project budgeting and charging. You may instead adopt Agile for exception handling scenarios. Utilising Agile will help you manage the uncertainty and react to this constant change. For some cases, exceptions become part of SOP like COVID-19 where it have lasted for more than a year.
