Agile software development methodology is a process by which a project is managed by breaking it up into multiple stages. It involves constant collaboration with stakeholders along with iterations and continuous improvement at every stage. Unlike the Waterfall model, in Agile Software Development model both development and testing activities are concurrent.
Agile’s four main values are:
Working software over comprehensive documentation
Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
Responding to change over following a plan
Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
Agile software development methodology frameworks include Scrum, Kanban, Extreme Programming (XP), and Adaptive Project Framework (APF).
How Agile Works
Agile software development principles and practices follows an iterative approach towards software development. It consists of a number of small cycles called sprints. Each sprint is a mini project and comprises design, development, implementation, testing, and deployment stages.
By the end of each sprint, a product increment is delivered with new features added. With the validation of features done early in the development, the chances of delivering a potential product failure are significantly lower in Agile Software Development model.

Over a decade ago we were helping dental practices get better through a combination of our very early proprietary software and lots of one-on-one consulting and training. Even back then our software made sense of all the data hidden inside the PMS. It tracked everything and gave practices an eye-opening, 100% transparent look at what was really going on. With an Agile software development methodology, suddenly practices had real-time data they could use to make decisions. We got rid of guesswork and dentists and office managers really loved it.
