Case Study Course Name Student’s Name Date Agile Movement in Software Development Agile movement refers to an approach started by software developers that favours an iterative incremental procedure of managing the production activities of engineering computer science and business fields. The software developers were against the conventional rigid non-interactive method that assigned more importance to set plans rather than responding to the dynamic environment (Turk 2014). Agile movement aims at coming up with a software that is customised to the customers’ needs as opposed to the traditional method of designing products without seeking customer approval. Agile development proponents advocate for development of software that works and adapts to changes quickly in contrast to the conventional predictive approach that focuses on analyses planning and mitigation of known risks. The agile approach works best where there are no constraints or restrictions. It is the best approach for setting up software for ingredient for the viability of any IT project. Their involvement ensures success timely implementation design quality and sustainability of the project (Gawin 2017). References Dybå T. Dingsøyr T. & Moe N. B. (2014). Agile project management.
