True Agile - Principle Frequent Work Delivery

Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale.

Frequent delivery of working software will enable the stakeholders to deliver their feedback and review on product sooner. Things in the design that remained unclear or where misinterpreted by the developers emerge at such review moments. This enables the whole project to adjust their interpretation of the design soon and keep the design aligned with the intention of the stakeholders. These frequent review moments can also be used by the development team to verify a certain solution with the stakeholders (i.e. with a prototype) before spending a lot of time on implementing it completely.

Frequent delivery of working software will also keep the stakeholders involved in the development process. The end-users will have frequent moments to deliver their input on parts of the new system and are noticing their input to be incorporated in the next version. This approach will create a cooperative ownership of the proposed end-product that will facilitate faster acceptance and ownership of the delivered product.

In case of an application with a GUI, the first version will most probably contain some screens. This is a great opportunity for the development team to ask the end-users their feedback on the usability of the screens. Changes in usability or look and feel are still easy to apply since there are little screens implemented. The second advantage of this frequent delivery is that the end-users are already used to the look and feel. They will not be surprised when presented the final system because they have seen it dozen of times. They have used and tested the system many times and are able to start working with the system right away. So this will reduce the need for training these users.

Frequent delivery will also enable the development team to keep the end product aligned with the changes in the environment.
