Agile Development

Agile development methods adapt to changes, grounded in the principles of agile manifesto.

Agile doesn’t force a team to use a single approach for developing software throughout the lifetime of its development. It encourages changing any aspect of the process whenever necessary.

Agile does not prescribe a single specific process like SCRUM or Kanban that must be used. It also does not necessitate the use of a “burn down” chart, stand-up meetings, DevOps, or Continuous Delivery. These are all processes that can significantly contribute to the agility of a team that delivers software, however.

Though the movement for agile began officially in 2001 – it is still a valuable and popular topic today. It continues to evolve as additional processes and tools emerge that push teams towards greater agility.
