The most popular agile software methodologies are Scrum, Extreme Programming (XP), Lean/Kanban and hybrid approaches. While each of these agile software methods is unique in its specific approach, they all share a common vision and core values. They also fundamentally incorporate iteration and the continuous feedback that it provides to successively refine and deliver working software. Learn more about specific agile software methodologies.
Benefits of Agile Software Development
Agile software development accelerates the delivery of initial business value, and through a process of continuous planning and feedback, ensures that value continues to be maximized throughout the development process. By delivering working, tested, deployable software on an incremental basis, agile development delivers increased value, visibility and adaptability much earlier in the life cycle, significantly reducing project risk.

Support Agile Software
Using traditional project management tools that don’t inherently support agile software processes can be a recipe for failure. Traditional tools that only provide agile templates or plug-ins aren’t designed to help you scale your agile software initiatives. Agile software tools facilitate planning and tracking by release and iteration, simplify making changes to project priorities and plans, and automate reporting of key agile metrics such as Velocity and Burndown charts.
