The advantage of agile Development for Drupal

Why Agile Web Development is needed

We at Valuebound, have come across and observed numerous projects that have suffered huge cost overruns, delays, and worse, even complete failures for one chief reason. The major reason behind all these problems is that they tried to do too much all at once and too soon. Most projects have to face failures as they fail to identify the requirements and focus on the essentials.

Our experience over the years have taught us that it is far better to create something small and appropriately focused that works effectively. Also it should get deployed in a matter of few weeks or months rather than getting stuck in a giant, uncontrollable project that never tastes success. It is very easy to conceptualize an enormous and perfect project with all sorts of functionality. However, the truth is that the larger and more ambitious the project, the less likely it will launch on time and within budget. Then again, it is almost impossible to estimate accurately how long a process will take and how much it will cost, unless the process is very precisely defined and accurately scoped. Luckily enough, there is a solution to fix the problem of haywire and overambitious development strategy. The solution lies in Agile Development. The premise behind Agile is that you:

Precisely describe a vision

Suggest a wish list of features

Weigh each feature according to its estimate time and cost to develop

Rank and prioritize these features based on their impact or value at the lowest cost, and shortest amount of time to deliver

A short 2-3 week sprint that enables you to deliver completed functionality

At the end of every sprint, you should have been able to complete the deliverables that contribute to a greater goal, strategy or objective. After this you can deploy software releases that contain the design, developed, and tested deliverables of one or more sprints.

The advantage of Agile Development is that you are able to see the results faster. You can get the results into the hands of the clients more quickly, then get feedback on these deliverables. Once you have the feedback of your clients, then you can use them to determine the future direction of the project. One more important side of this is that if the project was to lose funding or leadership, then you will have complete, functional software that is deployed and working. All the work that’s done would have been put to use and not have been wasted completely.
