Can we write up a proof of concept as part of an agile project? If so then how do we divide up the cycle times or should this be done as part of initial requirements phase?

I don't see why you couldn't implement a POC. Can you please elaborate your question on dividing up cycle times? Which cycle times are you talking about, and why do they need to be divided up?

When I think of a POC (proof of concept), I think of prototypes, or lets do some coding to see if it works. Why would you write it up first, rather than just doing it? Can you explain a little better? POCs are a big part of agile. Before spending a lot of time planning something that might not work, create a story for a "spike" or POC.

I have the same questions about cycle times that Ilja had.
