When we develop our web app, we will most likely need to interact with the team, discuss our project requirements with them, monitor how the work is done and check the results. Thus one of the important steps to be taken before starting any engagement is to decide on the software development methodology. There are several software development methodologies to choose from depending on the project goals, requirements, size, timeline, team members involved, project management tools used, etc.
Waterfall is the most conventional software development methodology. In fact, it has been one of the most popular approaches for web development projects for several decades due to its plan-driven approach. The Waterfall approach requires a lot of structure and documentation. The process is divided into several stages that form a sequence:- Analysis, Design, Implementation, Testing & Maintenance.
Agile is another methodology widely used for web app development projects. The Agile method is often used for the projects with no definite requirements and limited short timeframes. Agile is better suited to manage complex web development projects that involve variability. It allows teams to develop in short iterations that have a specified timeframe and deliverables but don’t have a specific order.
Scrum shares Agile’s fundamental philosophy that development teams should collaborate daily and intensively. Scrum uses an iterative approach to web development where the team is a key. This approach requires self-management and self-organization which means that it will be a good fit for smaller projects with experienced and organized team members.
Lean is more than just a workflow methodology. It’s a mindset too. Originating from manufacturing, as a way to optimize the production line to minimize waste and maximize value to the customer, lean approach is widely used in various spheres, including web application development.
