Software Development Methodologies We Employ


Software development is done in Sprints, 2-3-week iterations with identified granular goals and backlogs. The following practices are common: sprint planning meeting, daily stand-ups, sprint review (and demo), retrospective, backlog refinement (grooming).

Best for: any product development project with a need to test the idea, midsize projects in custom software development where software requirements cannot be accurately defined, incremental development of large complex software (which is easy to divide into small functional parts) to start getting value fast.


The work is done in very short Sprints, often daily. Daily (or once in 2 days) meetings are held to discuss progress and priorities. The team uses the Kanban Board that provides a clear representation of all project activities, responsible persons, and progress. 

Best for: software support and evolution projects.

Specific cases

Linear: the sequential approach in which the next chunk of work is done when the previous one is finished and approved by the stakeholders.


Best for: small and midsize projects with clearly defined and unchanging requirements, projects requiring formal approvals (governmental projects and projects for big corporations), projects with strict compliance requirements.

More details about pros and cons of each software development model are here.

Note: For many projects it makes sense to use a combination of approaches or switch from one to another depending on the project stage. In our practice, the most common scenarios are ‘Waterfall -> Scrum’, ‘Scrum -> Kanban -> Scrum’. Since switching to a new methodology entails new tools and new processes, a pre-switch intro meeting or mini-training should be conducted by the vendor to keep project running effectively from day one.
