Ep2: Agile Values & Principles

Today, I wanted to tell you a bit more about these Values and Principles.

In 2001, a group of software developers published the Agile Manifesto. It is a brief document built on 4 values and 12 principles for agile software development.

The 4 values are further broken down into two sets, primary values and secondary values.

All of the values contribute to the success of your project, but the primary values are the values that contribute most to successful projects, and are valued over the secondary values.

The 12 principles further define the Agile way of working.

My favourite principle is number 10: Simplicity, the art of maximizing the amount of work not done.

The first time I saw this one, I had to read it a few times, to let it sink in. It sounded like an oxymoron!
