Agile approach

Text alternative to diagram of Agile approach

An agile approach allows you to learn as you go, building on your foundations and testing to refine early versions of your product. The diagram shows how the agile approach is usually broken down into sprints. In this case we have three sprint stages. Within each sprint there are five stages. Each stage is represented by an arrow pointing to the following stage. The five stages within each sprint consist of the following:

1. Strategy and research
2. Design
3. Development
4. QA Testing and launch
5. Support and ongoing development

A constant arrow running horizontally beneath each of these five stages is the project management arrow showing that all these stages are overseen by a project manager.

The diagram shows that in sprint one, when the five stages are complete, it leads into sprint two and the five stages repeat, this then leads into sprint three and so on.
