Agile manifesto: 

The organisations implementing Agile need to understand core principles or “manifesto” 1.

  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools 
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation 
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation

Agile implementation: 

There are different interpretations and approaches to implement Agile. One of popular implementation of Agile is through SCRUM methodology. 

Agile project meetings are known as “rituals” are “ceremonies”. The common rituals are:

  • Sprint planning: A team planning meeting in which the tasks to be completed in the coming sprint will be determined
  • Stand-up: The team and customer get together on a daily basis or weekly basis (or anything in between) typically for 15 minutes status update. The stand-up meetings replace the formal Project Meetings.
  • Sprint demo: The team will demonstrate the working product that is shipped in the iteration.
  • Sprint retrospective: A reflection on what went right and wrong in the previous sprint.
