What is Agile Model? Advantages of Agile Model?

Agile Methodology:
Agile development methodology attempts to provide many opportunities to 
assess the direction of a project throughout the development life cycle. Agile methods break tasks into small increments with minimal planning and do not directly involve long-term planning. Iterations are short time frames that typically last from one to four weeks. Each iteration involves a cross functional team working in all functions: planning, requirements analysis, design, coding, unit testing, and acceptance testing. At the end of the iteration a working product is demonstrated to stakeholders. This minimizes overall risk and allows the project to adapt to changes quickly. An iteration might not add enough functionality to warrant a market release, but the goal is to have an available release at the end of each iteration. Multiple iterations might be required to release a product or new features.

Agile as the name refers implies something to do very quickly. Hence Agile Testing refers to validate the client requirements as soon as possible and make it customer friendly. As soon as the build is out, testing is expected to get started and report the bugs quickly if any found. As a Tester, you need to provide your thoughts on the client requirements rather than just being the audience at the other end. Emphasis has to be laid down on the quality of the deliverable in spite of short timeframe which will further help in reducing the cost of development and your feedbacks will be implemented in the code which will avoid the defects coming from the end user.


Advantages of Agile Methodology:


  • Agile first priority is to fulfill the customer need from beginning to end and continuous improvement to ad into valuable software.
  • Agile allow change in requirements in the late in the development as well.
  • Agile works on delivering software regularly interval i.e. from couple of weeks to couple of month based on project.
  • Close, daily cooperation between business people and developers throughout the project.
  • Key point is to trust, support and motivate individuals to get it projects build on time.
  • Daily face-to-face conversation is key point in agile testing. This is most efficient & effective way of communication.
  • Measuring progress by the amount of completed work.
