Agile Principles

The Agile Manifesto is pleasantly short. However, the authors thought it might be a good idea to elaborate on the newly named Agile idea, so they created the following twelve principles:

Principle 1: Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software.

After all, we’re doing business, and we need to have happy customers. That’s obvious. Well, nowadays, we prefer to say that the end-users’ satisfaction is the ultimate measure because that generates profit for the customer and, sooner or later, will satisfy the customer in a sustainable way. Too idealistic? So, how do we satisfy them? That’s by the software we create, which has the potential to generate value (e.g. money). When we deliver early and continuously, we will generate the value sooner, and we also have the opportunity to adapt and create something that the market really wants and will pay for, rather than something that we expect them to want.

Principle 2: Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer’s competitive advantage.
