Agile Why and How

with one comment

Ask about “Agile” and everyone will start with the Agile Manifesto. It serves us well, seems short — only 4 sentences. But then there are 12 principles as well, so I guess 4 sentences weren’t enough.

After trying, and learning, and delivering some good software, we’re also getting the message clearer.

Why Agile?

To put working code in front of the customer quickly, so they discover better what they want, and tell you.

How to do that?

Reduce batch size, and limit work in progress.

Today’s thanks go to Rex MorrowDele SikuadeKen Clyne, and another coach who’s known me all my life.
