Summary:
The spiral model (full name Incremental Commitment Spiral Model or ICSM) has its roots in large, million+ lines of code development efforts. It emphasizes iterative, feedback-driven, risk minimized development through short cycles.

Parallel Agile (PA) applies a simplified version of the spiral model one use case at a time so that teams can more easily deliver software in parallel. Its goal is to reduce the cost of communication between teams so that projects can scale-out efficiently. PA simplifies the ICSM cycles as Proof of Concept, Minimum Viable Product, and Optimization and suggests timing of a month per phase. With a large team of developers working in parallel, you can achieve significant schedule compression and deliver a large-scale project in 3 months.

This talk by Professor Barry Boehm of USC and Parallel Agile CTO Doug Rosenberg explains the ICSM principles and how they are applied within Parallel Agile to shorten schedules, improve quality, and lower cost
