Scrum Development Methodology Agile software development uses an iterative and incremental process that encourages a collaborative relationship between the client, the scrum-certified project manager, and the technical team.

By using Agile – Our entire team is involved in the quoting and planning of projects, bringing together our experience and knowledge to analyze a client’s needs and goals. – Our project managers work with clients to understand their priorities, so these items can be accomplished first. – Our team holds brief meetings at the start of every day to evaluate progress. – Our project managers not only understand the day-to-day of the project, but also grasp the big picture. – Our project managers are constantly reviewing and planning with the next stage of development in mind. Agile allows our team at Liquid Designers to incorporate new information, find errors early, and respond to the issues that can and do arise during a project.
