5 Stages of Agile Development Lifecycle

Agile development is a process where there is a continuous shift in technology design and development through an iterative approach. In order to deliver a product that is much more valuable in a short span of time, the agile life cycle splits the system into smaller parts. Let’s take a look at the 5 phases of the implementation of the Agile system development.

  • Project Initiation – The first stage is all about discussing the project vision and the ROI justification. During this step, the company identifies team members and determines the time and work resources required to complete the project.
  • Planning – In this step the Agile lifecycle takes shape for the team. The team gets together with their product owner and identifies exactly what they are looking for. They discuss how this can be made possible by building the backlog.
  • Development – Once the requirements have been defined, the actual work begins for developers to start building the first iteration of the product. This is far from the final version and will later undergo a number of revisions.
  • Production – This is the phase where the product is deployed and is used by final end-users. However, it is important to monitor these early stages for bugs or defects. A handover with relevant training should take place between the production and support teams. 
  • Retirement – This is the final stage of the Agile lifecycle. The product is now at the ‘end of life’ stage and will be pulled from production and decommissioned. Customers are notified and informed about migration to newer releases.
