Agile Is Dead (Long Live Agility) – PragDave

Back to the Basics

Here is how to do something in an agile fashion.

What to do:

  1. Find out where you are
  2. Take a small step towards your goal
  3. Adjust your understanding based on what you learned
  4. Repeat

How to do it:

  • When faced with two or more alternatives that deliver roughly the same value, take the path that makes future change easier.

And that’s it. Those four lines and one practice encompass everything there is to know about effective software development.
