Agile Values

  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation                    
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding to change over following a plan

Agile Manifesto Principles

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

Product Development Methodologies Details


  • Principles
    • Visualize workflow
    • Create flow and pull
    • Balance demand against throughput
    • Limit WIP
    • Target lead time with performance metric
    • Continuous improvement
    • Class of service
  • Benefits
    • Flow-driven, pull system, balance demand and throuput
      • Allows for 'just in time' and more focused delivery of work
      • Less multitasking and context switching
      • Reduces wasted time (parkinsons as well)
    • Not everything requires estimates and deadlines
    • Front-loading not optimimal, and oftern arbitrary
    • Continuous improvement and reprioritization, not fixed methodology
    • More flexible process-wise, quickly adapt to new information and needs
    • Emphasized continous delivery
    • Increased productivity and efficiency
      • Increased output
  • Characteristics
    • Class of service (CoD: cost of delay-based)
    • Work in progress (WIP) limits
    • Target date with performance metric


  • Principles
    • Kaizen
    • Build, measure, learn
    • Fail fast and often
    • Maximize customer value while minimizing waste
    • Create flow and establish pull
    • Minimum viable product (MVP)
    • Minimum lovable product (MLP)
    • Minimum marketable feature (MMF)
