As Agilists, our principles and values underpin the way we work and decisions we make. A good principle should be timeless and non-prescriptive enough to be valid across many contexts, but specific enough to add practical value and help us make decisions.
I feel that one Agile Manifesto principle in particular has frustratingly failed to stand the test of time:
“Working software is the primary measure of progress”
I disagree strongly. Working software is only a measure that more software exists, which is not the same thing as progress!
