Given the nature of the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) process and the number of parties involved in a development team, it is natural that its evolution and flexibility flow in an organic and innovative fashion. This flexibility gives the process the ability to easily adapt to several factors such as changes in scope, requirements, complexity, and more. But this can also be a detriment when the project requires a strict and steady process.
Ideally, a high-functioning SDLC includes the best from both worlds: a reliable system that leaves enough room for personalization. For instance, the Agile Software Development concept is a term coined for a specific SDLC model that is oftentimes used to harbor practices based on the Agile Manifesto principles and its influence within the SDLC framework, creating a comprehensive set of Agile Software Development phases to follow. Among the software process modeling options, Agile stands proud as one of the main representatives of these SDLC methodologies, joined by the Waterfall model, V model, Spiral model, and more.
Innovation drives change. The art of combining creativity with the SDLC framework empowers businesses to unlock and create value. To generate impact, creativity and company strategy must be companions. If there’s no clear direction or if the idea is not a solution to an existing problem, the idea stagnates and falls under the radar.
The power to think beyond expectations. Vision and creativity generate ideas for improvement, innovation, and growth.
Sometimes, the issue is not coming up with ideas. But identifying the ones worth pushing forward. It is the ability to recognize the power of an idea that can launch positive outcomes on a grand scale.
Actionable insights are fundamental to power an idea into a tangible result. Knowledge helps transform a simple idea into a full-fledged innovative project.
Accepting change and adapting is an important quality to consider when driving innovation. It is with this adaptability that businesses can think ahead and prepare for change with solutions and results.
Go big or go home right? While it’s mostly true, this isn’t always the case. Businesses must evaluate the reach and scope of an idea and how the impact can drive success in certain markets.
Know your peers. Get to know the competition. And collaborate. It is through cooperation and benchmarking that businesses can grow into unexpected fields, driving innovation from all over the worlds and expand.
