This chapter introduces a hybrid software development framework, called Milestone-Driven Agile Execution, in which the empirical process control and the just-in-time planning of tasks of agile development are retained but the prioritization of the backlog is done according to a macro or strategic plan that drives the execution of the project. Selecting work items from the product backlog according to a plan instead of following the immediate concerns of a product owner adds visibility, predictability, and structure to the work of the team while preserving the adaptive advantages of agile development.
