Today’s software industry is striving for rapid software delivery with keeping in view the changing customer requirements. Agile development approach has evolved in order to fulfil the needs of dynamic environment in which traditional approaches were failing to cope with. It has the cutting edge like fast release and minimum documentation which results in maximizing speed and profit. However, the most difficult task is to make the decision such that the agile development method should be chosen according to the given requirements of the particular project. In the absence of any empirical work, we have proposed a multilevel hybrid approach using the world widely accepted methods as Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), Preference Ranking Organization Method for Enrichment Evaluation (PROMETHEE) and Fuzzy logic. We have calculated results from four different methods of multi criteria decision making and the final result is evaluated using the rank aggregation methods. This work would prove to be a pivotal point in the field of agile development as it includes these empirical methods which provide the much awaited authenticity and reliability, which sometimes is questioned in case of agile approach.
