The term “agile” leads to a development process that is more responsive to customer needs compared traditional methods.
. Highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software.2. Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer's competitive advantage.3. Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale.4. Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project.5. Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.6. The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation.
7. Working software is the primary measure of progress.8. Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely9. Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility.10. Simplicity--the art of maximizing the amount of work not done--is essential.11. The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams.12. At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly.

Agile methodologies believe that … adaptability to changing requirements at any point during the project life is a more realistic and better approach than attempting to define all requirements at the beginning of aproject and then expending effort to control changes to the requirements.
Agile Development Methodologies• Agile Modeling• Agile Unified Process (AUP)• Dynamic Systems Development Method (DSDM)• Essential Unified Process (EssUP)• Exia Process (ExP)• Extreme Programming (XP)• Feature Driven Development (FDD)• Open Unified Process (OpenUP)• Scrum• Crystal Clear• Velocity tracking• Kanban (development)• GSD Source : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agile_software_development
Characteristics of Agile Development Methodologies• Reduce the cost of change.• Emphasis on coding.• Emphasis on testing.• Listening to customer needs.• Software Architecture Design is optional.• Emphasis on Software Release
Advantages • Shorter development time• Continuous communication between developers and client • Adaptive to requirement changes
Disadvantages• Insufficient structure and necessary documentation• Prioritizing changes can be difficult• Can lead to more difficult contractual negotiations
Agile is…• Suitable for project where product release is important factor.• Requires huge staff and later break into group which tackle specific problem.• Needs more customer involvement.
