Software Development Methodologies

Complex software projects impose high demands on outsourcing vendors. To be a success, a project needs to deliver a custom product that provides tangible business value, advances your market position, and propels you ahead of the competition — all while meeting the expected scope requirements, schedule, and budget constraints.

Without a well-defined, predictable methodology in place, the chances of successfully tackling such a challenge would be slim to none.

Scrum or Waterfall — We’ve Got Your Back

Each project can have unique requirements, and we fully appreciate that. Rather than rigidly imposing a one-size-fits-all approach, we meticulously analyze your business needs and suggest the optimal way to make your project succeed.

Since 2005, we have accumulated a wealth of expertise in many popular development methodologies, with Scrum being our weapon of choice. We also keep a close eye on, and adopt best practices from other agile methods, such as Lean and Scrumban.

Whatever the approach your project demands, we have the skills and the expertise to work independently, or seamlessly integrate with your team to help deliver outstanding results.


Waterfall presupposes classic, linear development that relies on several project phases that do not overlap. Such a model could be a good fit when:

  • The project is relatively short in duration and the technology is well-understood
  • The requirements are not expected to change a lot after the development begins
  • The project budget is fixed and budget control is of paramount importance


Scrum is an iterative development model that uses time-boxed sprints. It is best suited for larger, more complex projects that fit the following criteria:

  • Only a rough project vision is available or project requirements are loosely defined
  • There is a high probability of the requirements changing during the project course
  • Both parties are willing to frequently discuss and refine the requirements to advance the project
  • I highly recommend Oxagile for any size project.

    Oxagile’s professional team has worked with us closely to design, develop and execute an award-winning platform that continues to get better with each and every phase.

    We have put the Oxagile team under great pressure to deliver some of the features with little to no notice and they have come through on time and delivered a great software product.

    I highly recommend Oxagile for any size project as we started small on our project and grew it into a major platform that is used by thousands of users on a daily basis.
