Agile is a group of methodologies that share a number of common threads. They: 1) are empirical, tactical, and iterative; 2) work with existing tools; 3) are compatible with overall process improvement strategies like the Software Engineering Institute (SEI)'s Capability Maturity Model (CMM); 4) are focused on the coding process, and focus on code, not documentation; 5) fit with the product cycles of web applications; and 6) work with web-enabled tools.
