Example text

Such a company has programmers already on staff. In this case, there is no reason to sit and wait while business analysts collect requirements. Getting the programmers to deliver a “beta” product and test it in the marketplace makes all the sense in the world. Gmail is a great example. Another place where Agile is a good fit is after a large software product has been delivered and you are in support/maintain/enhance mode. In this case, the business has baked in some costs for ongoing maintenance and support, so the Agile budgeting problem is largely solved.

Lack of Up-Front Costs If you can’t say with specificity what you’re building or how long the project will last, you also can’t say how much it’s going to cost. Agile proponents will say, correctly, that practitioners of traditional software development methods (Waterfall) get the budget wrong more often than not. That’s true, and this book has recommendations on how to deal with budgeting in Chapter 8. Agile’s solution to the inaccuracy of software budgeting is to avoid the topic almost completely.

Objections to a phased approach generally focus on the less-than-smooth user experience. In the previous example, users would come to the main website, click on the Investor tab, and end up on another website with different navigation and, perhaps, no easy way to click back to where they were. In my experience, these negatives create a lot of fussing but are always far outweighed by the positives. It is extraordinarily beneficial to be able to roll out a piece of something, learn from that experience, and then do the next piece.
