Agile processes harness change for the customer's competitive advantage.

Agility is driven by the need for change.

Agile methods deliver working software quickly.

Involve your people in the development process.

Principles of Agile Development

bullet

The highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software.

bullet

Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer's competitive advantage.

bullet

Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale.

bullet

Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project.

bullet

Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.

bullet

The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation.

bullet

Working software is the primary measure of progress.

bullet

Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.

bullet

Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility.

bullet

Simplicity--the art of maximizing the amount of work not done--is essential.

bullet

The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams.

bullet

At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly.
