The Agile methodology for software development is a structure of stages from beginning to end. It contains six phases and help product owners and developers to develop high-quality product much quicker.

Agile Methodology Phases

Product Backlog

Planning and Backlog

Sprint in progress

Testing and Demo

Product Review

Product Retrospective Feedback

1. Product Backlog:

In this stage, we track and create your product story which compile and make up concepts.

Notes: User stories cannot become part of the sprint if they are not fully ready to be put in the product backlog list.

2. Planning and Backlog:

Once we have a clear idea of the scope of your project, then we look for the best way to get it done. With sprints to reduce time for measuring feedbacks and updates. This is helps you to see witness development changes during the cycle. At planning phase, we breakdown:

3. Sprint in progress:

We break down user stories into smaller tasks and add them to the sprint backlog. Use a Kanban task board to help keep track of all the software development processes. We specify information through board cards such as:

4. Testing and Demo:

Sprint goals demand demonstrable, working products. We resolve all bugs from the previous sprints and not carry them over into the next sprints. This is how we manage our legacy code. Here are best practices for beta testing and demo:

5. Product Review:

This is a step in which we demonstrate open communication with stakeholders. We hold in-person or video conference meeting to build a relationship and discuss product updates and show the finished product.

6. Product Retrospective Feedback

Conduct a sprint retrospective meeting with stakeholders to discuss the aftermath of complete development cycle, such as:

Main Roles fill-up Agile Development Cycle

Scrum Master

Scrum master work closely with the Product Owner to ensure that the Product Backlog is ready for the next sprint.

Product Owner

The product owner decides what features to build and prioritise the feature that offers the most business value to the customer.

Scrum Team

The scrum team consists of professionals like developers, UI designers, architects, programmers, analysts, QA experts, system admins, testers, etc.

Your Take Aways with Agile Methodology

Agile methodology form teams and use several developers on each project, with which the business can no longer support as many projects as it once did. Development teams, as opposed to individual developers working alone, have an easier time pushing back on unrealistic workloads, which would necessitate managers beginning to scale down lesser priority projects and products. Here are your key takeaways with agile development methodology:

1. Better Control

Features like transparency, quality-control and review integrations, Agile offers better control of the complete project.

2. Increased Flexibility

In agile development methodology, the team works in sprints that are not only easily attainable but also flexible enough to make changes on short notice.

3. Continuous Improvement

The agile development cycle works in recursiveness, each sprint will be more promising than the previous one and without iterative mistakes.

4. Better Project Predictability

The fixed durations make it easier for the manager to analyse the performance of the team and accordingly assign resources.

5. Reduced Risks

All the progress is assessed by developers to have improved the visibility to identify errors and obstacles.

6. Product Quality

The iterative manner for project management improves the process upon every interval repetition leading the development of high-quality products.

7. Customer Satisfaction

Our custom-made deliverables are more likely to improve customer satisfaction and retention.

Agile Tools and Techniques we Deploy at Stallions Solutions

All software development approaches are adaptable and predictive in nature. The Agile SDLC falls under the adaptive category, while the V-shape, Waterfall, Iterative, and Spiral models are under the predictive group. They are all created with different development needs and expectations.

V-shape SDLC

The development team goes through the various stages of the SDLC step by step.

Iterative SDLS:

Use an iterative approach without an extensive list of requirements, only use functional requirements.

Spiral SDLC:

Requires a detailed inspection of each iteration, preferred for large, expensive, and complex projects.

Waterfall SDLC:

Uses a linear path where we complete one phase before moving on to the next, without turning back.
