Agile principles are now being applied to software development, software testing and project management, but what are the basic principles that Agile is based on?
All Agile methods were designed around a simple premise; the smaller the project, the greater the success rate. For agile to be successful it must be both quick and simple.
In 2001 the Agile Manifesto was born. Representatives from several Agile methodologies (including SCRUM, eXtreme Programming & DSDM) came together and devised a set of values and principles that any Agile methodology should adhere to. These values and principles would increase the success rate as projects would be constantly revised to meet customer requirements.
