Type — Exreme Programming, Scrum, Agile Software Development, cost and schedule


 The   In this study we have focused on various methodologies of nimble programming advancement, for example, Extreme Programming, Crystal Clear, Scrum, Lean programming improvement and some others methods related to category. As there are several methods related to agile development, but we have mainly focused on some of the important methodologies, discovered so far []. This study also reveals the criticism over some of the agile methodologies, based on some of its parameters, while in some situations favor is given to the traditional methodologies. We have adopted quantitative and qualitative approaches to carry out this work, the major audience involved were professionals, software developers who were working in the industry, and were the real practitioners of these methodologies, by taking advantage of their experiences we have considered their suggestions, ideas and experiences. Any software development project involves certain parameters: productivity, quality, cost and schedule. These project parameter are at the main theme of our study, based on it we have discovered that how agile methods may influence the software development industry.
