Tangled Web use both traditional and agile methods for delivering working software. We will use the methodology which suits you best, dependent on your working style and the nature of the project.
We have over 20 years experience delivering software for companies as diverse as Tesco, WH Smith, Local Councils, World Online, Tiscali, MeoMed and Unique Distribution.
We are qualified in both traditional project management, (Microsoft Certified Project Manager), and in agile project management (AgilePM Practioner & Srum Master).
Increasingly, we prefer to use Agile for software development for a variety of reasons.
Manifesto for Agile Software Development
We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others to do it. Through this work we have come to value:
- Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
- Working software over comprehensive documentation
- Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
- Responding to change over following a plan.
That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value to items on the left more.
Principles Behind The Agile Manifesto
These are the principles we follow:
- Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software.
- We welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer’s competitive advantage.
- We deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with preference for the shorter timescale.
- Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project.
- We build projects around motivated individuals, giving them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.
- The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation.
- Working software is the primary measure of progress.
- Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.
