Defining Agile Development (continued)

As I prepared to discuss Agile with a client recently, I found that I was missing an important element of the definition in my last post. Here is what we settled on:

Agile is:

  • A project management process that encourages frequent inspection and adaptation
  • A leadership philosophy that encourages team work, self-organization and accountability
  • A set of engineering best practices that allow for rapid delivery of high-quality software
  • A business approach that aligns development with customer needs and company goals
