Gone are the days where you take months or years to deliver a product to the end customer. In today’s fast evolving technology, if your delivery is late, you lose the race. You need to be on your toes to deliver the best and high quality product without compromise on the budget and time line. That is the requirement of the day.
To suffice to this, the existing waterfall model of the project which was followed across the software industry is now being replaced rapidly with the methodology called the ‘Agile’ development.
In this type of development, you will be in constant touch with your stake holders. The stake holder job does not end at the point he gives and freezes the requirement. In this methodology, you will develop the feature requested by your customer, and take constant feedback during the entire process. This gives to ample scope and time to take any changes in the requirements that come up mid-way in the project.
If you are following the water-fall model of project development, you shown the end result to the customer only after the entire product is developed. At this instance, if there is any change request, your project cannot accommodate it – leaving you in a transfix. But in the agile methodology, your end product will be in sync with what your customer desires…putting you ahead of the race.
