Agile in practice

Agile working means working smarter: you create more value to your product or service and you fully involve your client in the process. In practice, you divide the work into blocks of 1 to 4 weeks: sprints. During a sprint you work on a sprint goal. This can be a complete product, or a piece of a product. After the sprint you collect feedback and continue in the next sprint based on the feedback.
