Our Principles

 

  • Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable functionality.
  • Software functionality can only be realized by the customer when it is delivered to them by sound systems.
  • Nonfunctional requirements are as important as desired functionality to the user’s outcome.
  • Infrastructure is code, and should be developed and managed as such.
  • Welcome changing requirements, even late in development.
  • Deliver working functionality frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of days.
  • Business people, operations, and developers must work together daily.
  • Build products 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 successfully delivered by sound systems is the primary measure of progress – build and deploy quality, disposable, software.
  • Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, operations, 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.
