The Principles behind the Agile Manifesto commonly referred to as the 12 Agile Principles are a set of guiding concepts that support project teams in implementing agile projects. Use these principles as a litmus test to determine whether or not you’re being agile in your project work and thinking: 
  • Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software. 
  • Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer’s competitive advantage. 
  • Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale. Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project. 
  • Build projects 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 is the primary measure of progress. 
  • Agile processes promote sustainable development. 
  • The sponsors, developers, 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.
