Regardless of program concentration (System Development or Information Security), all four-year degree Information Systems & Technology majors at Weber State University (WSU) in Ogden, Utah, are required to take the capstone project management course. Not only does this mean student preparation levels in system development are uneven due to program emphasis but with recent changes in the Weber curriculum, students have mixed backgrounds in development methodology spanning SA/SD and OOAD. This case study describes an attempt to use an agile methodology to bridge the differences in background by focusing on a common set of analysis, design, and implementation artifacts.

Keywords: agile development methodology, Crystal Clear, eXtreme programming, IS2002.10, light-weight systems analysis and design, project management, senior project capstone
