What is the Agile Approach
Agile project management and implementation in software and tech products have proven valuable to both the teams and the stakeholders, by allowing an efficient flow of work with steady deliveries and timely corrections. The simple principles of Agile translate in higher revenue and less investment of both time and resources in the long run.
What is Agile?
Agile is a working methodology that promotes continued development and testing in short-term planning iterations. It is highly based on team collaboration and accountability. This method allows great flexibility and quick adaptability to changes.
What are the Agile Values?
Agile methodologies are base on 4 defined values:
- Individuals and interactions over processes and tools.
- Working software over comprehensive documentation.
- Customer collaboration over contract negotiation.
- Responding to change over following a plan.
From these apparently simple principles, stem multiple Agile wireframes, like scrum, lean, eXtreme Programming (XP), and others.
Multiple companies in all types of industries have tested Agile and received the tangible benefits of this methodology compared to traditional Waterfall Project Management (the traditional approach).
Why is Agile better than Waterfall Project Management for Software Development?
Waterfall project management has been the traditional approach so far in multiple industries. However, software development has particularities that demand a flexible and adaptable method, rather than the more linear way the waterfall method proposes.
|Incremental and Iterative||Linear sequence from start to end|
|Constant feedback and the possibility of changes||Feedback and changes possible until the end of the project|
|High collaboration between developers, testers, and stakeholders||Individual teams working separately|
|Errors can be fixed quickly without affecting other stages of development||Errors are fixed at the end with a high possibility to affect the entire product and cause expenses|
|Developers actively participate in planning and requirements, helping make a viable product from the start||Developers do not participate in planning and requirement, which translates in delays later in the process|
While both approaches have benefits, the particular needs of software have made Agile the most popular way to go, as it ensures the constant quality of the deliverables and higher participation of the developers and technical team during the early stages of planning, which ensures the project has also the technical grounds needed to be viable.
How does Agile reduces costs in my Projects?
Software is a complex thing to design and create. In order to be successful, it requires testing and reviewing constantly to ensure that it will work as intended. Software development with Waterfall Project Management can look attractive thanks to the possibility to imagine start and end dates and the projected costs. Since this method is linear and requires that all development is done before the testing phase is done, the cost of testing a completed product, finding any errors, and actually making corrections towards a potential release (subject to another testing and correction phase), will result in higher costs and more time than it was supposed to take. Multiple projects have started with a budget and ended spending twice or thrice as much due to this type of inflexible approach.
Agile proposes a model of incremental deliveries developed in short periods of time (typically 2 to 4 weeks). These short sprints of work will deliver a functional product, tested and corrected. With every increment, the product continues to evolve with the added benefit that any necessary changes can be detected very early in the process and any corrections handled swiftly.
In the long run, this saves an incredible amount of time and money and allows also for the adaptation to the market and any other changes in the ecosystem of a product or company.
Are there studies about the impact Agile has in the industry?
To give you a quick idea, here is a short sample of the information available online about the benefits of agile:
- The US government has lost $32 billion as a result of failed IT projects.
- 60% of companies experience growth in profits after adopting an Agile approach.
- 80% of federal IT projects adopt Agile.
- The Agile failure rate is 8%.
