The increasing popularity of Agile approaches to software development forces an increasing number of organizations to deal with issues of Agile adoption (and adaptation). This paper lays some groundwork for a pattern language that will facilitate the transition to agility. We introduce patterns that focus on the dynamics of adoption rather than the structure that results from adoption. To establish the desired foundation it is necessary to “push the pattern envelope ” in terms of traditional pattern documentation format and relationships among patterns that form a pattern language.
