Adaptive and flexible, the Agile method delivers software that prioritizes speed-of-development.
Agile is a set of principles and values that guide software development practices.
In 2001, seventeen software developers gathered in Utah to lay out foundational principles that would change development forever. The timing was perfect; the world wide web had been established, but development speed continued to linger behind ideas and innovation.
Software development needed a framework that matched the pace and flexibility of the internet. The traditional waterfall method built large software products over years—products that could be obsolete by launch time in today’s fast-paced world.
Agile is more than a process; it’s a belief system that shapes how a team produces deliverables. The hallmarks of agile are timelines with a faster ideation-to-product pipeline that prioritizes a working product.
All of Ventive’s departments utilize Agile principles—from design and marketing to development. Our priority is developing an MVP that solves a client’s most pressing problem.

If you’re used to software that’s delivered as a finished product in two years’ time, you’ll be surprised by the adaptability and effectiveness of the Agile method.
Agile is focused on getting a working product into users’ hands as quickly as possible—meaning months and not years. A shorter development timeline considers customer feedback sooner rather than later, and the project solves problems from the get-go.
Rather than waiting several years for a release to discover that the product doesn’t fit the market, Agile development checks in regularly with users so that the product fit is right from the beginning.
Save money. Deliver faster. Fail less.
