The Agile Manifesto During Agile testing, it’s helpful to keep the four central tenets of the Agile Manifesto in mind to help guide the decision-making process.

01 Individuals and interactions over processes and tools

02 Working software over comprehensive documentation

03 Customer collaboration over contract negotiation

04 Responding to change over following a plan

Supporting Principles – 12 Agile Principles 1) Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through the early an continuous delivery of valuable software. 2) Welcome changing requirements, even late in the development. Agile processes harness change for the customer's competitive advantage.

7) Working software is the primary measure of progress. 8) Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors developers and used should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.

9) Continuous attention to technical excellence and design enhances agility.

3) Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with preference to the short time scale.

10) Simplicity – the art of maximising the amount of work not done – is essential.

4) Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project.

11) The best architecture, requirements and designs emerge from self organising teams.

5) Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.

12) At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to be more effective, then tunes and adjusts behaviour accordingly.

6) The most effective and efficient method of conveying to within a development is face to face conversation.

NOT a silver bullet

It is a development process

Do you know the ROI?

‘Tip of the Iceberg’ Did you know that only 10% of an iceberg is actually visible? UI

http messages (web server) Application-toApplication (business logic)

Think of your current system as an iceberg. 9/10ths of it are invisible or behind the screen.
