Agile Software Engineering

Agile software development is a set of principles for software development in which requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing,[1] cross-functional teams. It promotes adaptive planning, evolutionary development, early delivery, and continuous improvement, and it encourages rapid and flexible response to change.[2] Agile itself has never defined any specific methods to achieve this, but many have grown up as a result and have been recognized as being ‘Agile’.

The Manifesto for Agile Software Development,[3] also known as the Agile Manifesto, was first proclaimed in 2001.

 

Project Management Offices (Agile and Waterfall)

We are subject matter experts in both Agile and Waterfall Project Management Offices (PMO). We have experienced and built them from cradle to grave for large enterprises, as well as small and medium businesses and start ups. We love them and we hate them. We love them when they are a facilitator of agility for the business, and we hate them when they do the opposite. Bottom line, we know how to make them better using our methodologies and technology tool sets. In fact, we can transform your PMO in days and weeks, not months and years.
