Dear All,
We all know from the Agile Manifesto which mentiond "Agile promote early and continuous delivery" . I may sound repeating the same quesiontion which may be being discussed before; however, how can we manage to make early delivery for a software product and at the same time it has to be a valuable software for the busniess and at the same time the software product consists of sub-modules which are interdependent; besides that each module require a time scale more then two months to deliver in a team of 5 developers.

The basic trick is to break down the requirements into pieces of functionality that all have inherent business value and can be implemented in less than a week each. Then start implementing those pieces in priority order, always end-to-end, that is, every time you implemented one piece of functionality, your system should be in a state that you can install it in production.

If you could provide an example of a system you have trouble imagining being developed that way, we could use it to further discuss this way of working.
