Web development is hard, very hard – and it’s getting harder. But there is hope, a radically different approach called agile.
If you build websites for a living, you know the pressure. Drupal sites can be complex beasts with thousands of moving parts. Clients have high demands – changing demands. Budgets have never been tighter. If you are going to keep the sites you manage ahead of the competition, you have to innovate – continually. And everything has to be done at the breakneck speed of web time.
The results: the average software project is 45% over budget, delayed by 63% and missing 1/3 of the promised functionality. Failure has become the norm – but there is a better way.
