What is Agile Software Development?
Agile software development approaches eschew traditional ‘waterfall’ development lifecycles for more dynamic, targeted and efficient practices. Some agile development teams release weekly or bi-weekly updates to the software under development, others pair developers together to improve both quality and productivity, and management methods such as scrum can help teams work together by providing a framework for managing and resolving day-to-day issues and tasks.
Chariot realizes that every customer has a different tolerance for change. Where appropriate, we can craft a development methodology that best fits your organization’s style and maximizes your efficiency.
Agile methodologies can help your organization:
- Build software your customers actually need by vetting requirements during the entire development lifecycle
- Improve your software quality by releasing software on a regular basis
- Improve communication between team members by implementing an agile project management program such as Scrum
