LightSky follows the Agile process of software development, which allows for fluidity of features and scope while fixing the number of hours and therefore cost. Agile includes a series of well-defined steps that keep the communication clear and expectations in line. By gathering input throughout the process LightSky can adjust plans and approach continuously, and clients can introduce new needs or re-prioritize features.
Benefits of Agile Development
- Software evolves as iterations, each building on the previous and taking the client's evolving or newly discovered needs into account.
- Clients review functional software in a matter of weeks, not months or years.
- Our project team adjusts quickly to updated project and client needs, ensuring that development is always progressing, never back-tracking.
- Clients and our project team meet in-person rather than via email or through documents so that we can listen to each other and work as one cohesive team instead of as "client" and "vendor."
