comment Is there an agile project management technique for developing innovative software systems?
Thanks for your reply! You did not try to solve the problem but erased the question. How can we manage a research project, if you call it a project? Or maybe you think doing research is an ad-hoc process and there is no methodology or a way to manage it.

I know what I want to develop, but I don't know how to do it! For example, I want to develop software to predict lottery numbers (!) But I don’t know how to do it! There are several prediction algorithms but probably none of them works. The idea is to find a solution. (I don’t want to develop such software, it is for example only!). So I have a well defined goal (lottery prediction) but the way to do it in unknown and nobody else did it before. I think innovation is a project that has a start and a well defined goal but the path to reach to goal is unknown.

I think it is more of several spikes followed by scrums and some other elements such as study, algorithm development but how we can define it? It is similar to Agile as the path to get to the target would change a lot during research/development, very similar to the fact that in Agile, we are open to the requirement changes. I think there are several similarities and yes I agree that there are some differences.

But there is a well know goal! We don’t know how to get there! For example, Wright brothers invented airplanes. They knew what they wanted: They wanted a way to fly, but at that time nobody knew how to do this.
