PlanetTogether follows the Agile Software Development methodology.
Disciplined agile software development is an iterative and incremental (evolutionary) approach to software development which is performed in a highly collaborative manner by self-organizing teams within an effective overnance framework with “just enough” ceremony that produces high quality solutions in a cost effective and timely manner which meets the changing needs of its stakeholders.
