Session 1: Agile Principles and Mindset

  • Agile frameworks and terminology
  • Agile Manifesto
  1. Individuals and interactions over processes and tools 
  2. Working software over comprehensive documentation
  3. Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  4. Responding to change over following a plan

=> If you don’t follow the four Agile Manifesto values “It Will Create Risks”

  1. Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software. [Customer Satisfaction]
  2. Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer’s competitive advantage. [Welcome Changes]
  3. Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale. [Frequently Delivery]
  4. Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project. [Collocated Teams] _ [work with business]
  5. Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done. [Motivated Individuals]
  6. The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation. [Face-to-face Contact]
  7. Working software is the primary measure of progress. [Working Software]
  8. Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely. [Constant Pace]
  9. Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility. [Continuous Attention]
  10. Simplicity — the art of maximizing the amount of work not done — is essential. [Simplicity]
  11. The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams. [Self-Organization]
  12. At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly. [Regular Reflection]


  • Agile methods and approaches: 
    • Scrum, XP, Kanban, FDD, DSDM, Agile UP
    • Scaled Approach: Lean, Scrum of Scrums, LeSS, Disciplined Agile, SAFe, Crystal Methods
  • Agile process overview

    • Five principles: 
      1. Visualize the workflow, 
      2. Limit WIP (work in progress), 
      3. Manage flow, 
      4. Make process policies explicit, 
      5. Improve collaboratively
    • Pull system: move work through the development process, When it completes an item of work, it triggers a “pull” to bring in the next item they will work on.
    • WIP limits: Capping the number of items that can be in a given state of progress. Once the limit at the top of a column is reached, no new items may be moved into that column until another item is moved out.

    • Earned value management (EVM) for agile projects
      • Projected progress, Planned value (PV), Planned features
      • Scope built, Earned value (EV), Completed features
      • Planned cost, Projected spending
      • Actual cost (AC), Actual spending
      • Schedule variance (SV) = EV - PV
      • Cost variance (CV) = EV - AC
      • SPI = Completed features / Planned features
      • CPI = Earned value / Actual cost

      • Simple Schemes: “Priority 1,” “ Priority 2,” “ Priority 3,”. “ high,” “medium,” and “ low”
      • Kano analysis: Delighters/exciters, Satisfiers, Dissatisfiers, Indifferent
      • MoSCoW: Must have, Should have, Could have, Would like to have
      • Monopoly Money: distribute funds amongst the system features, prioritizing business features.
      • 100-Point Method: each stakeholder is given 100 points, distribute the 100 points in any way.
      • Dot Voting or Multi-Voting: Each stakeholder is limited to a total of dots to distribute as they wish.
      • Requirements Prioritization Model:  the benefit, penalty, cost, and risk of every proposed feature is rated on a relative scale of 1 (lowest) to 9 (highest).
    • Relative prioritization/ranking: A single prioritized list of work-to-be-done.
      • Return on Investment (ROI): measures the profitability of an investment by calculating the ratio of the benefits received from the investment to the money invested in it.
      • Present Value: Present value is a way of calculating the value of a future amount in today's terms, given an assumed interest rate and inflation rate.
      • Net Present Value (NPV): The present value of a revenue stream (income minus costs) over a series of time periods.
      • Internal Rate of Return (IRR): The discount rate at which the project inflows (revenues) and project outflows (costs) are equal.
    • Software development practices 
      • Continuous Integration: developers to frequently incorporate new and changed code into their project code repository. 
      • Exploratory testing: find edge cases, system boundaries, and unanticipated behavior
      • Usability testing: observing users as they interact with the system for the first time.
      • Red, Green, Refactor: The process of writing a test that initially fails, adding code until the test passes, and then refactoring the code.
      • TDD/TFD: Tests should be written before the code is written.
      • ATDD: Moves the testing focus from the code to the business requirement.
    • Task/Kanban boards: a whiteboard with columns that show various stages of work.
    • Value-driven delivery: One of the key ways agile teams try to maximize value is by delivering value early. 
    • Work in progress (WIP): work that has been started but has not yet been completed. 
      • WIP consumes investment capital and delivers no return on the investment
      • WIP hides bottlenecks in processes
      • WIP represents risk in the form of potential rework
    • WIP limits: restrict the amount of work in the system and help ensure that WIP limits are not exceeded.
      • Identify bottlenecks and Remove bottlenecks
      • Reduce the risks of tied-up capital, rework, and waste
