Abstract: The increased symbiotic relationships between society and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) pave the ways for a substantial alignment and rethinking of current software development methodologies. This paper presents the use and validation of a software analysis and project management (PM) framework for iterative software development within the Tropos method. This methodology is servicedriven, its requirements models are founded on social-based modeling elements. The PM framework includes risk and quality management; it has been applied on multiple case studies and this paper presents a full experience report. The proposed methodology is aimed to provide a reference for practitioners willing to develop iteratively using Tropos.
