  7. 7. 7 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. © Leidos. All rights reserved. Agile Principles (1)
  8. 8. 8 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 behaviour accordingly. © Leidos. All rights reserved. Agile Principles (2)

  11. 11. 11 There are four ‘Ceremonies’ (i.e. official meetings) within a Sprint: Sprint Planning Meeting, Daily Scrum, Sprint Review and the Sprint Retrospective Sprint Planning: determines how many prioritised items can be delivered in the next sprint, what order they will be completed in and by whom Daily Scrum: facilitated by the Scrum Master, a daily stand-up where the Development team report on: • What did I complete yesterday? • What will I work on today? • Am I blocked by anything? The Scrum Master works to remove identified blockers Sprint Review: the team demonstrates and discusses the functionality developed during the sprint the Product Owner, Scrum Master and stakeholders Sprint Retrospective: the full team review progress and determine what changes need to be made to improve the Scrum process ©2016 LEIDOS.
