Agile Culture

If you value efficiency while maintaining quality, and flexibility while maintaining focus, you'll love Agile. 

Agile methodology lets Web Essentials adapt to changing requirements, deliver software continuously, and work in a more collaborative way - all while reducing the cost to you. 

With Agile, our highest priority is to satisfy our clients with early and continuous delivery of valuable software. It's just another way we're defining web development. 

Benefits of Agile 

When results come at the end of the development phase, unplanned changes lead to greater costs and cause launch delays.

Agile development is instead characterized by flexible processes allowing changes at any time, leading to quicker project results and lower costs.

Because of the emphasis Agile places on efficiency, we have invested into our hardware, ensuring our developers have the tools they need to ensure continuous deployment. But this efficiency doesn't come at the expense of a quality product; our automated quality assurance system makes sure quality is baked into everything we produce. 

Agile is more than a development methodology; it is a set of values that puts the clients' needs at the forefront of everything we do, by valuing: 

  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation 
  • Responding to change over following a plan

Why do we do Agile?

Because Agile allows us to produce working software frequently, giving the client a chance to give their feedback throughout the process. There is continuous reflection as teams collaborate to develop and test during each sprint. The aim is to deliver great working software with every sprint, increasing value by understanding the client's needs early on and reducing the risks in the course of the project.
