Avaion E3™ - Agile Solution Development

Based on the Adaptive Life Cycle, developed by James Highsmith, Avaion E3™ belongs to the family of Agile Methodologies. Rather than rigidly attempting to eradicate change, Avaion E3™ instead embraces change, seeing deviations as mile markers that guide stakeholders towards the correct solution, one that could not have been envisioned during the early planning phases of a project or process.

The Avaion E3™ Framework, illustrated below, consists of three phases: Envision, Execute, and Evaluate.

An important feature of Avaion E3™ is that it focuses on results, rather than tasks, by defining specific "Components" of a system and their relative quality characteristics. Then, through close collaboration with the business stakeholders, in short iterations or "Cycles", those components can be defined or re-defined as appropriate, with a focus not on constraints imposed by the original planning and system design, but rather on the specific, emerging needs of the business.
