ISO/IEC/IEEE International Standard - Systems and software engineering - Developing information for users in an agile environment

This document supports the interest of information developers and associated roles responsible for producing information for users of software and systems developed within an agile environment. This document takes a process standard approach to specify the way in which information for users can be developed in agile development projects. This document provides requirements of information management and information development processes appropriate for software projects that are using agile development methods. Clause 5 covers the overall requirements for information in agile software development. Clause 6 covers requirements for the information development lead or project manager to plan an agile information development project and manage the information development activities in an agile environment. Clause 7 covers requirements for designing, developing, and providing information for users in an agile environment. Annex A describes agile development practices and methods.

ISO/IEC/IEEE International Standard - Systems and software engineering -- Developing user documentation in an agile environment

ISO/IEC/IEEE 26515:2012 specifies the way in which user documentation can be developed in agile development projects. It is intended for use in all organizations that are using agile development, or are considering implementing their projects using these techniques. It applies to people or organizations producing suites of documentation, to those undertaking a single documentation project, and to documentation produced internally, as well as to documentation contracted to outside service organizations. ISO/IEC/IEEE 26515:2012 addresses the relationship between the user documentation process and the life cycle documentation process in agile development. It describes how the information developer or project manager may plan and manage the user documentation development in an agile environment. It is intended neither to encourage nor to discourage the use of any particular agile development tools or methods.
