The main difference between an agile approach to software development and the traditional methodologies such as “waterfall” is that the customer is in the forefront of the process. This methodology has some key values:
SCRUM is used by many of the top fortune 500 companies such as Google Inc. and Microsoft. The true benefits of this methodology is not limited to large organisations but also applicable and appropriate to small and medium sized enterprises.
SCRUM is an iterative and incremental agile approach to software project management. It provides the best mix of control and visibility while also allowing flexibility in the software production process, factors that make it ideal to manage software development outsourcing.
Geveo’s short iteration development enables continuous improvement through the project cycle. Requirement analysis, designing, implementing, testing are repeated by each iteration and therefore the project is developed incrementally. It reduces mistakes in assessment and supports prompt plan adjustment based on feedback.
The result of iteration is a tested build which represents real progress and quality and importantly facilitates user feedback since each step is carried out with client participation.
At Geveo, we believe and follow the Agile and Scrum philosophy and practices religiously. In doing so we believe it delivers complete transparency during the life of the project, the collaborative approach works and in turn provides our customers with the maximum return on investment.
