Four Values of Agile

Most organizations these days are making use of Agile framework in their business by both applying and modifying part of its. Part of the reasons behind the popularity of Agile is that the framework plays an important role in both achieving customer satisfaction and enhancing the project’s success. This article will deliver deeper insight into Agile framework and all of its aspects.

Above all, Agile framework is a method that could be used in project management to create and maintain the product’s continuously development. Although many adaptations have been made, there are four key values in the Agile Manifesto.

1. Individuals and Interactions Over Processes and Tools.

The first Agile Manifesto value puts a strong emphasis on the importance of people in the process of working. Human’s ability is limitless, they possess the potential of being creative and innovative, they can further their knowledge, self-correcting themselves through their tasks. Tools and processes, on the other hand, cannot be improved without the help of people. They also lack of communicating aspect, which plays a vital role in the project’s success. 

2. Working Software Over Comprehensive Documentation.

Usually, using traditional methods in preparing project documents can be both time-consuming and resource-wasting. Agile values do not fully deny the use of documents on a project, but reducing the amount of time that is spent on those documents with the help of software, hence make working easier and more efficient.

3. Customer Collaboration Over Contract Negotiation.

Negotiation is just a time when the project manager him/herself discuss with the customer on the project’s different aspect, while customer collaboration refers to a bigger term. Customers on an Agile project and attribute their review to the product through constructive feedback. All of which gives the project manager a chance to maximize his product’s value, satisfying even the pickiest customer. 

4. Responding to Change Over Following a Plan.

The occurrence of changes in the middle of a project is somewhat unavoidable. Traditional project teams attempted to adjust to changes blindly, lacking an opportunity to improve the final products. Meanwhile, Agile project approach reacts to changes in a more positive way, since Agile fragment consider all changes are foreseeable and adjustable, allowing the worker to make a quick response to any changes.
