We use Agile Methodology in software development projects. We value the lightweight flexible approach with frequent but brief meetings that embrace change and incorporate new ideas into the project. The result is closer to want the project owner wants and gets to market quicker. A brief review of Agile follows:
The Agile Manifesto reads, in its entirety, as follows:
We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value:
Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
Working software over comprehensive documentation
Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
Responding to change over following a plan
That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.
