Agile Software Development
We apply the Agile's 12 core principles in our daily operations. When in doubt on how to proceed, we use them as guiding ideals.
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.
4 Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project.
5 Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.
6 The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation.
7 Working software is the primary measure of progress.
8 Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.
9 Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility.
10 Simplicity - the art of maximizing the amount of work not done - is essential.
11 The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams.
12 At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly.
