12 Agile Principles

  1. Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software.
  2. Simplicity – the art of maximizing the amount of work not done – is essential.
  3. Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change to the benefit of our customers.
  4. Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment, tools, and support they need to get the job done.
  5. Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project.
  6. Working software is the primary measure of progress.
  7. Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.
  8. The most efficient and effective method of conveying information is a face-to-face conversation.
  9. Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility.
  10. The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams.
  11. At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly.
  12. Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale.
