The Methodology

The principles and rules set forth are in use at Lato Sensu Management and Vae Soli! when it comes down to create Web Sites based on Vae Soli! or when we complete/adapt/refactor Vae Soli!.



Principle #1: Apply the philosophy of the Agile Manifesto whose principles are to value :

  1. Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  2. Working software over comprehensive documentation
  3. Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  4. Responding to change over following a plan

That is, while there is value in the items on the right, value the items on the left more !

Lato Sensu Management has signed the Agile Manifesto between 22 Feb and 04 Mar 2009.

Principle #2: Get deeply acquainted with the principles behind the Agile Manifesto, which are repeated here below for the sake of convenience :

  1. Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software.
  2. Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer's competitive advantage.
  3. Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale.
  4. Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project.
  5. Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.
  6. The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation.
  7. Working software is the primary measure of progress.
  8. Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.
  9. Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility.
  10. Simplicity—the art of maximizing the amount of work not done—is essential.
  11. The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self- organizing teams.
  12. At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly.
Agile Manifesto Principles

Principle #3: Consider all principles as guiding values towards an end goal. Do not change the end goal for the sake of respecting the principles. Create/change/adapt the principles instead. This should be rare.

Principle #4: Consider all rules as recognized methods and processes that help respect the principles. Change/adapt/complement the rules when they no longer permit to follow the principles. This is frequent.



Rule #1: Apply eXtreme Programming as described by Kent Beck and largely advocated by Martin Fowler.
