Software development is relatively new when compared to plumbing or electricity. We don’t have standard wire and pipe sizes or handbooks telling us how to “unclog” or “rewire” our testing problems, nor do we have licenses ensuring that we meet industry “code.”
To handle this, software professionals have developed many methodologies and strategies to work through software development issues, such as the formulation of Agile to combat Waterfall’s shortcomings. Unfortunately, simply following the principles of the Agile Manifesto or a book on Scrum isn’t enough to attain success.
Like habits for a productive and meaningful life where you learn as you go, adapt, and improve with experience, there are habits that lead to highly effective Agile, whether converting from a Waterfall process to Agile or trying to finetune the Agile process.
