Incremental Development

  • Jeff Dalton


Incremental Development is the practice of breaking the delivery of features or functions into small pieces that can be envisioned, built, tested, and delivered in a predictable, timeboxed period of time. Through the completion of multiple increments, a working system is created and delivered that fulfills the functional and nonfunctional requirements. The approach requires multidiscipline engagement, and the creation of a design and other documentation in matching increments. Paired with Iterative Development, it is a powerful and predictable work management system that forms the basis of most agile frameworks.
