Tom Gilb’s Ten Key Agile Principles to deliver Stakeholder value, avoid bureaucracy and give creative freedom
1. Focus on real Stakeholder values
2. Communicate Stakeholder values quantitatively
3. Estimate expected results and costs for weekly steps
4. Generate results, weekly, for Stakeholders, in their environment
5. Measure all critical aspects of the improved results cycle.
6. Analyse deviation from your initial estimates
7. Change plans to reflect weekly learning
8.. Immediately implement valued Stakeholder needs, next week
Don’t wait, don’t study (analysis paralysis), don’t make excuses.
Just Do It!
9. Tell Stakeholders exactly what you will deliver next week
10. Use any design, strategy, method, Process that works quantitatively well - to get your results
Be a systems engineer, not a just programmer (a ‘Softcrafter’). Do not be limited by your craft Background, in serving your paymasters
