We follow Agile methods in our work. This is blended with other principles and practices to make what we call our “Agile Mocktail”.
What is Agile?
Agile development is a method of creating software by performing a small series of various different tests with codes before the correct formula has been perceived. Design, testing, and reports are all important factors that are a part of this process. The designers of the particular software usually have meetings about the process of the agile development after each step is performed to discuss what to do next. In the future this will benefit the client so that they will know that they are getting what they want out of the software. There are many different agile development advantages
Agile-SCRUM is our core method for software engineering. Since most of our work is on new software development in a fast-paced world with changing realities, we find Agile-SCRUM suitable.
We recognize and respect the Agile manifesto
- Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
- Working software over comprehensive documentation
- Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
- Responding to change over following a plan.
In addition, SCRUM introduces roles, rituals and artifacts that we have found useful to keep things clear, moving and clearly moving.
At individual level, we follow the Personal Software Process (PSP) in all our work. Two specific principles of PSP – self-time-estimation and self-defect-analysis – are followed in addition to Agile-SCRUM. The PSP was developed by Watts Humphrey, creator of the SEI-CMM, based on lessons from CMM – as a way for real software engineering improvement to touch each and every engineer. We have found PSP leads to deeper understanding of work and quality, and there is significant gain due to its introspective principles. Plus, PSP blends smoothly with Agile-SCRUM.
Advantages of Agile
- Reduces clients dissatisfaction
- Shorter development cycles
- Early customer feedback
- Continuous improvement
- Various altering and changes during development
So there it is – our very own Agile Mocktail. The leading global methodology blended with the leading personal engineer process, with a twist of practical best practices learnt.
