What is Agile?
Agile is the ability to adapt to changes as fast or faster than
changes occur. Agile is an umbrella term for a set of
values, principals and practices that have been shown to improve
the efficiency, productivity, and quality of software delivery.
The Agile Manifesto was written
 In 2001, a group of 17 “lightweight” methodologists met
Including Representative of
 eXtreme Programming (XP)
 Scrum
 DSDM Adaptive Software
Development
Agile Manifesto
The Agile Manifesto
We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing
it and helping others do it.
Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
Working software over comprehensive documentation
Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
Responding to change over following a plan
That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value
the items on the left more.

Traditional
Agility is a relative term
 Focus on empowered, self-managing teams;
 Autonomous teams do not need the day-to-day intervention of
management
 Management protects team from outside interference
 Agile teams are composed of a mix of skills
 Agile team members are able to step in for each other as
necessary
Individuals And Interactions Over Processes And Tools
 Traditionally we measure progress by the percent complete of
the functional milestones
 Agile teams provide actual working product as a status report,
“product review”
 Design changes as the system is built, results in outdated
documentation
 Agile teams prefer face-to-face communication over
documentation because it is simpler, faster, and more reliable.
Working Software over Comprehensive Documentation
 Contract negotiation, Identify and define everything and spells
out the payment and date specifications
 Customers become a part of the development process
 Writing specs down and throwing them over the fence is
simply not effective
Customer Collaboration over Contract Negotiation
 It’s much easier to respond to change when the organization
and the customer share a clear understanding of the project’s
status
 In plan-driven environments, all requirements are specified up
front, broken down to the task level and estimated
 Agile plans follow more of a rolling wave approach using top-
down planning
Responding to Change over Following a Plan
What is Agile?
• An iterative and incremental (evolutionary) approach performed in a highly
collaborative manner with just the right amount of ceremony to produce
high quality software in a cost effective and timely manner which meets the
changing needs of its stakeholders.
• Core principles
– “Fits just right” process
– Continuous testing and validation
– Consistent team collaboration
– Rapid response to change
– Ongoing customer involvement
– Frequent delivery of working software
1. Satisfy the customer through
early and continuous delivery
2. Welcome changing requirements
3. Deliver frequently, preferring a
shorter timescale
4. Business & technical work
together daily
5. Pick the right team & trust them
6. Face-to-Face Communication
7. Working software is the primary
measure of progress
8. Sustainable pace
9. Technical excellence and good
design enhances agility
10. Simplicity, maximizing the
amount of work not done
11. Best results emerge from self-
organizing teams
12. The team regularly reflects
to become more effective

  • 3. What is Agile? Agile is the ability to adapt to changes as fast or faster than changes occur. Agile is an umbrella term for a set of values, principals and practices that have been shown to improve the efficiency, productivity, and quality of software delivery. The Agile Manifesto was written  In 2001, a group of 17 “lightweight” methodologists met Including Representative of  eXtreme Programming (XP)  Scrum  DSDM Adaptive Software Development Agile Manifesto
  • 4. The Agile Manifesto We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Individuals and interactions over processes and tools Working software over comprehensive documentation Customer collaboration over contract negotiation Responding to change over following a plan That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more. Source: www.agilemanifesto.org
  • 5. Agile Manifesto – Graphical Representation Individuals and Interactions Processes and Tools Working Software Comprehensive Documentation Customer Collaboration Contract Negotiation Responding to Change Following a Plan "Agile" | | | | | | | | Traditional Agility is a relative term
  • 6.  Focus on empowered, self-managing teams;  Autonomous teams do not need the day-to-day intervention of management  Management protects team from outside interference  Agile teams are composed of a mix of skills  Agile team members are able to step in for each other as necessary Individuals And Interactions Over Processes And Tools
  • 7.  Traditionally we measure progress by the percent complete of the functional milestones  Agile teams provide actual working product as a status report, “product review”  Design changes as the system is built, results in outdated documentation  Agile teams prefer face-to-face communication over documentation because it is simpler, faster, and more reliable. Working Software over Comprehensive Documentation
  • 8.  Contract negotiation, Identify and define everything and spells out the payment and date specifications  Customers become a part of the development process  Writing specs down and throwing them over the fence is simply not effective Customer Collaboration over Contract Negotiation
  • 9.  It’s much easier to respond to change when the organization and the customer share a clear understanding of the project’s status  In plan-driven environments, all requirements are specified up front, broken down to the task level and estimated  Agile plans follow more of a rolling wave approach using top- down planning Responding to Change over Following a Plan
  • 10. What is Agile? • An iterative and incremental (evolutionary) approach performed in a highly collaborative manner with just the right amount of ceremony to produce high quality software in a cost effective and timely manner which meets the changing needs of its stakeholders. • Core principles – “Fits just right” process – Continuous testing and validation – Consistent team collaboration – Rapid response to change – Ongoing customer involvement – Frequent delivery of working software
  • 11. 1. Satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery 2. Welcome changing requirements 3. Deliver frequently, preferring a shorter timescale 4. Business & technical work together daily 5. Pick the right team & trust them 6. Face-to-Face Communication 7. Working software is the primary measure of progress 8. Sustainable pace 9. Technical excellence and good design enhances agility 10. Simplicity, maximizing the amount of work not done 11. Best results emerge from self- organizing teams 12. The team regularly reflects to become more effective 12 Agile Principles
