What’s the Cost-Benefit?

An Agile project embraces the fact that we know the least about a project when it starts. We begin by identifying use cases and stories needed to create a minimum viable product (MVP). From here, we create a rough estimate of the size of each story.

The work is then prioritized, and work begins. Every few weeks, new features and produced and demonstrated with the customer providing feedback. The plan is then adjusted accordingly. Using continuous integration and deployment allows for fast feedback from customers and users.

As more work is completed, the amount of time to complete features becomes more consistent, and within a few iterations, we can establish a reasonable estimate of time and cost. The customer has complete control over the process, both in its transparency and in guiding the order in which work is done to maximize feedback and ROI.

Consider this: with an agile project, your team creates an MVP that is usable and testable as soon as possible. Once created, it can be improved upon with additional stories according to client specifications and priorities. Once the MVP is established, the time and cost required to complete the project are fairly fixed, allowing for the true cost of the project to be known early on. Unless resources are unlimited, this is an ideal scenario from a management perspective.
