“Our Agile Development Methodologies rely on “sprint cycles” which are regular meetings to ensure that user stories align with customers’ expectations. The concept relies on being able to regularly demonstrate the solution under development to customers. This step ensures that R&D is working in the right direction and helps us avoid significant changes at the end of the development plan.”
