Company-X director David Hallett explains the virtues of agile software development in this article on Stuff.
Fairfax Media journalist Aaron Leaman contacted David for comment after learning those working on the Midland eSPACE programme, expected to create a single point of access for clinical information across the Midland region, have been put on notice to deliver after going $28 million over budget.
Company-X subscribes to the Manifesto for Agile Software Development, which means there’s no surprises for our clients who we are in constant contact with at every step of our projects.
The manifesto states, “We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value: Individuals and interactions over processes and tools. Working software over comprehensive documentation. Customer collaboration over contract negotiation, and responding to change over following a plan.”
