This article introduces a methodology for developing applications incorporating components of Agile development methods with the traditional software development life cycle (SDLC), a.k.a. the waterfall model of software development. We look at the causes for failure of software development projects and propose steps in the development process to address many of the root causes of these failures (it would be implausible to state that any development methodology could eliminate the risk of failure). We also provide a critical review of Agile principles and the traditional SDLC. The steps of the new methodology are then described with rationalization for their necessity. © 2008 by The Haworth Press.
