Forum Post of the Day – The Golden Rules

This most excellent list is provided by Fred Monjo, from the Scrum Development Yahoo Group 

  • Work as an unbreakable united team
  • As a contributor, customer (PO) is the key for the project’s success
  • Welcome changes as a competitive advantage
  • Communicating well is better than programming well
  • Documentation must be useful and significant
  • High quality is the key to high speed
  • Keep your architecture flexible
  • Think simple, efficient, and incremental
  • A good team in a good environment

#3 is probably the hardest one for non-agilists to get – they see change as decay, entropy, disruption and pain, not as opportunity.
