Did you know?
The Agile Manifesto was established In February 2001, at a ski resort in Snowbird, Utah. I have been to this place, and it is beautiful. No wonder such a great product got conceived there.
1. Individuals and interactions over Processes and tools
2. Working software over Comprehensive documentation
3. Customer collaboration over Contract negotiation
4. Responding to change over Following a plan
And here are the 12 base Agile principles that lay the foundation of an Agile mindset:
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. Close, daily cooperation between business people and developers
5. Projects are built around motivated individuals, who should be trusted
6. Face-to-face conversation is the best form of communication (co-location)
7. Working software is the principal measure of progress
8. Sustainable development, able to maintain a constant pace
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
Remember: Don’t just do Agile….be Agile!
