Agile embodies the practices, tools, and culture that enable business and technical teams to work closely together to meet rapidly changing requirements and deliver working code incrementally and iteratively. The agile philosophy is inherently lightweight and encourages teamwork among a group of cross-functional, self-organized, and empowered members to deliver high-quality work. Agile uses a time-boxed approach, deploying new versions of the product at regular intervals and continuously soliciting feedback from users to refine the product. The agile common methodologies include Scrum, Kanban, Extreme Programming (XP), Lean, Function Driven Development (FDD), Dynamic Systems Development Methodology (DSDM), and Crystal. The Agile methodologies follow the values and principles described in the Agile Manifesto.
