Agile Methodology – A Collaborative and Iterative Approach Towards Software Development

Kott Software keenly supports and follows an agile process methodology for project deliveries.

Engaged Stakeholders

With the Agile model, the client is actively involved in the development process. The short, time-based iterations approach means that all project stakeholders can see how close the project or project phases are to completion.

Customer Centric

The focus of the Agile model is to give the customer an IT solution that is closely aligned with his enterprise vision. This means that after each iteration, the client feedback is incorporated into the product.It promotes adaptive planning, evolutionary development, early delivery, continuous improvement and encourages rapid and flexible response to change.

Higher Quality

The incremental and iterations based-approach to development means that there are no surprises for the client during the project phase and deliverables. Being involved at every step, changes can be made to meet new project requirements within the release cycles planned.

Features of Agile Development:

  • Iterative, incremental and evolutionary
  • Efficient and direct communication
  • Very short feedback loop and adaptation cycle
  • Quality focus

The Agile Manifesto reads, in its entirety, as follows:

We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value:

  • Individuals and Interactions over processes and tools.
  • Working Software over comprehensive documentation.
  • Customer Collaboration over contract negotiation.
  • Responding to Change over following a plan.
