Agile Manifesto

Agile values:

  • Individuals and interactions over Processes and tools
    • In agile development, self-organization and motivation are important, as are interactions like co-location and pair programming.
  • Working software over Comprehensive documentation
    • working software will be more useful and welcome than just presenting documents to clients in meetings.
  • Customer collaboration over Contract negotiation
    • requirements cannot be fully collected at the beginning of the software development cycle, therefore continuous customer or stakeholder involvement is very important.
  • Responding to change over Following a plan
    • agile development is focused on quick responses to change and continuous development.

 

Agile principles:

  1. Customer satisfaction by rapid delivery of useful software
  2. Welcome changing requirements, even late in development
  3. Working software is delivered frequently (weeks rather than months)
  4. Working software is the principal measure of progress
  5. Sustainable development, able to maintain a constant pace
  6. Close, daily cooperation between business people and developers
  7. Face-to-face conversation is the best form of communication (co-location)
  8. Projects are built around motivated individuals, who should be trusted
  9. Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design
  10. Simplicity—the art of maximizing the amount of work not done—is essential
  11. Self-organizing teams
  12. Regular adaptation to changing circumstances
