With software development at the heart of business differentiation, companies have long searched for software methodologies that combine aggressive time to market and top quality with lowest cost. Agile has proved to be successful in meeting enterprise goals. Agile adoption rate has accelerated over the past few years with Fortune 500 companies reporting gains such as 57% reduction is costs, 60% decline in defects and an astonishing 69% improvement in time to market.

Agile is different than traditional methodologies. Many organizations will fail to recognize its difference and, by underestimating the change management, will not reap the full benefits of the Agile project management and engineering practices.

The agile methodology focuses on:

  • Working software over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiator
  • Responding to change over following a plan
