  • 6. © Whizlabswww.whizlabs.com Agile Manifesto • We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value:  Individuals and interactions over processes and tools  Working software over comprehensive documentation  Customer collaboration over contract negotiation  Responding to change over following a plan • This implies, while there is a value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.
  • 7. © Whizlabswww.whizlabs.com Agile 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.
  • 8. © Whizlabswww.whizlabs.com Agile Principles(contd..) • 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.
  • 9. © Whizlabswww.whizlabs.com Agile Principles(contd..) • 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.
