Agile software development refers to the process of creating and improving software using an agile framework such as Scrum. An agile development project begins by defining the users and creating a product visionVision with problem areas, opportunities, and values that the product should address. The product or development team producesSmall, self-organizing teams then produce working software components as quickly as possible so that ongoing feedback and experience from using the software can guide the development process.
This approach goes back to the Agile Manifesto of 2001, which states the following core values:
These values still hold true today and are lived by our teams.
The agile core values still leave a lot of room for interpretation, so that in the end there are still many different ideas about what constitutes the agile method. With a focus on our customers, agile software development means the following for us in particular:
Make software development easier
Teams in many companies today use the agile methodology for their software development projects.
However, many companies struggle with poor plannability ("agile = everything changes all the time") in agile software development. Milestones are delayed and deadlines are not met. Our approach for optimal planability is active scope governance. We create a project plan and continuously keep track of progress, also with regard to longer-term milestones and deadlines.
Often the lack of budgeting or incorrect budgeting causes frustration in the implementation of software projects. We know that it is not only important that the project is completed on time, but also within budget. Using proven estimating methods and our years of experience, we can provide authoritative estimates even for large and complex projects.
Incorrect developments due to non-consideration of all requirements can cause high costs and lead to a lot of frustration for all parties involved. This does not have to be the case. We do requirements workshops and our systematic approach ensures that dependencies and non-technical requirements are also taken into account in the prioritization.
As your agile development partner, we can adapt the agile methodology to each project and meet your specific goals.
What does P&T do differently?
Our agile approach enables us to develop high-quality software that meets the changing needs of stakeholders cost-effectively and faster than ever before. The unique skills of our teams, combined with our approach ensure optimal results in agile software development:
