The benefit of using software development methods should be a gain in regularity and clarity in software projects. Classical approaches are designed for medium to big team size with a distinctly separated and static role description combined with a top down development process. Agile methods mainly focus on small teams with low budget project size, and a fixed deadline with a bottom up development process. In this paper we present a combined approach for projects with multiple small teams growing together to a medium size project with a hard deadline and low budget – called Agile Methodology for Intelligent Agents Componentware (aMIAC). The approach will be introduced and applied within a case study.
