12 Principles of Agile (Part 1)

Agile framework - a modern development methodology that puts human communication and feedback over tools has been commonly used in project management these days. This article will provide readers with Agile framework’s 12 core principles.


Product early delivery, customers are allowed to both test and give possible feedback, focusing more on the real goal of the project – customer’s demand, as said: “Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software.” 


Changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer’s competitive advantage.” Agile offers the whole team the flexibility, which allows changes even in the later phase of the progress. 


Different route focus on the aid of software, rather than depending on documents. The framework itself focuses on development, allowing the project to finish even before the deadline. While this principle will be discussed more in our 30PDUs bundle to renew PMI-ACP®, this could be seen as “Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale.”


To the Agile Manifesto, “Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project.” This is literally one of the most important principles of the list. Since both sides are needed to the success of the project, although they somehow talk in a different language, in a sense. This time, the project manager’s role is like a bridge, channeling the two riverside – business people and developers in this case. This is also tested in renewing your PMP®. 


The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face.” Despite technology advancement, this traditional way of communication is still the most efficient means of communication, for both quicker response and better understanding.


As mentioned, “Working software is the primary measure of progress.” Progress is not recorded by the number of completed tasks, staying focus on the project’s objective is way more important, and working software does a great job in helping you stay on the track.
