Agile Advantages

 

Scrum differs from other development methods through its advantages which turn it into a pragmatic response to product owners' current needs:

 

  • Iterative and incremental method: this allows to avoid the "tunnel effect", i.e. the fact of seeing the result only at the final delivery, and nothing or almost nothing during the entire development phase, which is so frequent with V-cycle developments.
  • Maximum adaptability for product and application development: the sequential composition of the sprint content allows to add a modification or a feature which was not initially planned. This is precisely what renders this method "agile".
  • Participatory method: every team member is asked to express his opinions and can contribute to all the decisions taken on the project. He is therefore more involved and motivated.
  • Enhancing communication: by working in the same development room or being connected through different communication means, the team can easily communicate and exchange opinions on the impediments in order to eliminate them as early as possible.
  • Maximizing cooperation: daily communication between the client and the Pentalog team enables them to collaborate more closely.
  • Increasing productivity: as it removes certain "constraints" of the classical methods, such as documentation or exaggerated formalization, SCRUM allows to increase team productivity. By adding to this the qualification of each module which allows to determine an estimation, everyone can compare their performance to the average team productivity.
