Principles behind the Agile Manifesto

We follow these principles:

  • Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer
  • through early and continuous delivery
  • of valuable software.
  • Welcome changing requirements, even late in
  • development. Agile processes harness change for
  • the customer’s competitive advantage.
  • Deliver working software frequently, from a
  • couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a
  • preference to the shorter timescale.
  • Business people and developers must work
  • together daily throughout the project.
  • Build projects around motivated individuals.
  • Give them the environment and support they need,
  • and trust them to get the job done.
  • The most efficient and effective method of
  • conveying information to and within a development
  • team is face-to-face conversation.
  • Working software is the primary measure of progress.
  • Agile processes promote sustainable development.
  • The sponsors, developers, and users should be able
  • to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.
  • Continuous attention to technical excellence
  • and good design enhances agility.
  • Simplicity–the art of maximizing the amount
  • of work not done–is essential.
  • The best architectures, requirements, and designs
  • emerge from self-organizing teams.
  • At regular intervals, the team reflects on how
  • to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts
  • its behavior accordingly.
