Agile Manifesto and signatories With these four basic values, the Agile Manifesto contains twelve agile principles (Agile Principles 2001). 1. Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software. 2. Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer’s competitive advantage. 3. Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale.

Of course, if no planning is done and bits and pieces of code are stuck together in what I call “random acts of construction,” then the effort is even higher from repeated reworking—product development with almost as high an overhead as too much planning. The optimal level is a combination of two techniques that focus on very small pieces of scope in a coordinated way. First, use the proper architecture to maximize separation of concerns so refactoring, a kind of guided rework, has very small units to change (Fowler 2000).

These patriarchs of the agile movement have banded together since in professional organizations to guide and propagate agile in their quest for how to build successful software products best. Manifesto for Agile Software Development 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 That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.
