Why agile benefits you financially
According to The Money Pit report by Standish, agile projects were found to be four times cheaper than an equivalent waterfall project and delivered higher user satisfaction.
So why does agile provide better value for money?
Let’s start with your first project sprint – this is where we cover the most important elements you need for your highest priority feature. We’ll show you the result, and then have further sprints focused on adding more features, working out bugs, or even taking the software in a different direction if market conditions have changed.
This method of working means that the most valuable parts of the project are developed first, making it quicker to develop an MVP.
6B’s Head of Delivery Marie Leverton described that, compared with the waterfall methodology of building everything in one go and making changes at the end, the money-saving capabilities of agile can be enormous.
“We understand the problem and the challenges faced at the very beginning of a project,” she said.
“We also appreciate that how a website or app looks at the end may be different to how it was originally envisaged as users and stakeholders are able to tangibly use the product.
“That’s because the business value and user experience is at the heart of what we do, and we can respond effectively to changing needs and feedback, working with you to stay true to the product vision.”
