Agile can mean different things to different people, so it can be helpful to create some common ground to avoid misunderstandings. As IBM Rational has worked with companies who are undertaking Agile Development, we’ve made some key observations:
Agile software development can be significantly different from one organization to another. Agile is not a “one size fits all” proposition
Agilists do a lot more testing, in fact they often write a test before they write sufficient production code to fulfill that test, then they iterate
Agilists work very closely together and ideally work closely with their stakeholders
Changing requirements are seen as a competitive advantage, as long as you can act on them, not as something that you need to prevent
Agilists deliver working software every iteration, providing concrete evidence of actual progress on the project. Daily builds, or even multiple times a day are highly desirable
Shorter iterations are desirable, from as short as one-to-two weeks, 4 weeks as a common recommendation, although up to 8 weeks will occur at scale
