There are a variety of Agile software development (or system development) methodologies, including, but not limited to:
- Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD)
- Extreme Programming (XP)
- Lean Software Development
Out of above Scrum and Kanban are most used in organization adopting Agile.
A great agile methodology–such as Scrum–is a lighter approach to software development than many of the traditional approaches.
Agile methodologies feature self-organized teams that are empowered to achieve specific business objectives. Agile techniques give attention to rapid and regular deliverables of partial alternatives that may be evaluated and used to ascertain next steps.
In this way, alternatives are built in an iterative and incremental manner. Agile methodologies have recently been shown to deliver high-quality products in less time, resulting in improved customer satisfaction.
Agile methods mostly focus on breaking up the product into smaller, easily developable, “shippable” product features developed through “incremental” cycles known as “sprints”.
Nevertheless, to understand the complete cycle the bottom line is, each sprint traditionally lasted from two weeks up to one month.
Agile developments now indicate they typically last from seven days up to ten “working” days. Cross-functional teams work simultaneously while developing the product features in daily sprints.
At the end of every sprint, a working product feature(s) is developed and presented to the product owner for verification purposes. Once the PO Okays the development, it is presented to the stakeholders, and their opinions are carefully observed to improve product development cycle.
The entire process is regular through sprints until all the constituent product features are developed.
