As an organisation, Upstack is a firm believer in the AGILE methodology for software development.
Our proven track record shows that it is effective in achieving the results our clients need, in an organised and functional manner.
Agile software development refers to a group of software development methodologies based on iterative development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing cross-functional teams.
Agile methods or Agile processes generally promote a disciplined project management process that encourages:
- frequent inspection and adaptation,
- a leadership philosophy that encourages teamwork, self-organization and accountability,
- a set of engineering best practices intended to allow for rapid delivery of high-quality software,
- and a business approach that aligns development with customer needs and company goals.(What is AGILE, 2017)
Methodology is just a fancy word for a system, in essence here we shall briefly go over the two main AGILE systems that Upstack favors for our projects, Scrum and Kanban.
