The first principle behind the agile manifesto is to satisfy the customer early and often through continuous deliveries. This means you need to involve the customer to ensure that what will be done, what is being done and what has been delivered maximizes value out of the effort provided. When Ludia put into practice agile methodologies, switching to a full-on Scrum framework, we realized that the benefits of customer-centric thinking were an important ingredient in generating maximum productivity accross all team members. Simply put, you must find who the customer is for any given effort to ensure that the person behind the effort has clear objectives, clear deadlines and clear acceptance criteria. Without this structure, agile methodologies can degenerate into a framework that becomes too casual, responsible for wasted time and energies.
