Agile vs Waterfall
When creating a new project, the customer must decide not only on the choice of the contractor, but also on the appropriate methodology for the development of the project. The development method is chosen based on the business objectives, scope of work, time and budget. The most popular are Waterfall – waterfall, and Agile – flexible. Note that the wrong choice of methodology can negatively affect your project, so take into account the peculiarities of each of them. Agile is a system based on the principle of “flexible” project management. This includes Scrum, FDD, Kanban, Extreme Programming (XP), Lean. Agile methodologies are built on the principle of iteration. The creation of a new product is divided into several cycles from one week to a month. Depending on the specifics of the project, the time frame is negotiated separately. Each cycle is a completed mini-project, which includes stages of analysis, planning, testing and implementation. As a result, the client receives a product, which, if necessary, is adjusted. Waterfall – assumes a consistent transition to each stage of development and the inability to go back one step. It will be possible to make any changes only after the release of the project. Choosing this model for your project, you need to understand that the final product will have flaws. It is simply impossible to foresee everything at the stage of analysis and planning; new requirements may appear during the development process. However, in Waterfall it is impossible to make edits during the project as well as going back a step. The classic approach is a waterfall model, which is based on the sequential creation of a project, broken down into cycles.
