Today most of the organizations are moving or have already moved to agile development and testing. Or at least they think so. Sprints and daily stand-ups are common. Everybody is talking about Scrum & minimum viable product. We are tracking the team velocity & burndown. We have cut down on the documentation & invested in working software. Everyone is focused on customer satisfaction by accepting change. But wait a minute! This is too-happy a picture to be true.
Transitioning to Agile? Or looking for ways to improve your current agile practice? These 12 Agile Manifesto Principles are a set of guiding concepts.
Many Software development methodologies evolved over the years, but why do you think Agile development stuck? What made it so popular? Yeah, the Foundation! The Agile Manifesto was written in February of 2001 by seventeen independent-minded software practitioners. The Manifesto defines four Agile values and twelve principles which forms the foundation of the agile movement.
“The art of life is a constant readjustment to our surroundings” – being Agile! Let’s see why Agile Methodology is not just an approach, it’s an attitude.
‘Methodology’ – means the same in Software Engineering as in English, a procedure. Yeah! You might be wondering then what’s all the fuss about it. Why so confusion. I too feel the same way. It’s just that too many methodologies have evolved since the inception of Software development & testing – different procedures applied to structure, plan & control the process (i.e. inception, requirement gathering, design, coding, testing & go-live).
