Similar to choosing a technology, adopting a particular methodology requires careful assessment and planning.  Critical Elements, LLC can guide your organization in determining the appropriate methodology for successfully implementing IT solutions.  Our experienced team of consultants has hands on experience with both light-weight and heavy-weight methodologies, such as Extreme Programming (XP) and Rational Unified Process (RUP).

When assessing any methodology, the main factors that will impact a decision are the size and skill set of the development team, status of the requirements and the delivery schedule.  In general, light-weight methodologies are best suited for small teams (up to 15 members) with rapidly changing requirements and delivery schedule.

The following is a list of some of the most popular light-weight software development methodologies:  

  • Extreme Programming (XP)

  • Agile

  • Feature-Driven Development (FDD)

  • Dynamic Systems Development Methods (DSDM)
