    1. Read about : Agile Manifesto
    The Incremental approach is a method of software development where the model is designed, implemented and tested incrementally (a little more is added each time) until the product is finished. It involves both development and maintenance. The product is defined as finished when it satisfies all of its requirements
    The Iterative Design is a design methodology based on a cyclic process of prototyping, testing, analyzing, and refining a product or process. Based on the results of testing the most recent iteration of a design, changes and refinements are made. This process is intended to ultimately improve the quality and functionality of a design. In iterative design, interaction with the designed system is used as a form of research for informing and evolving a project, as successive versions, or iterations of a design are implemented.

    3. Comparison between Agile values, Agile Principles and Agile Practices
    • 4 Agile Values: Individuals and Interactions Over Processes and Tools. Working Software Over Comprehensive Documentation, Customer Collaboration Over Contract Negotiation, Responding to Change Over Following a Plan
    • 12 Agile Principles: Customer satisfaction through early and continuous software delivery, Accommodate changing requirements throughout the development process, Frequent delivery of working software, Collaboration between the business stakeholders and developers throughout the project, Support, trust, and motivate the people involved, Enable face-to-face interactions, Working software is the primary measure of progress, Agile processes to support a consistent development pace, Attention to technical detail and design enhances agility, Simplicity, Self-organizing teams encourage great architectures, requirements, and designs, Regular reflections on how to become more effective
    • Agile Practices: Test-first programming (or perhaps Test-Driven Development),
        1. Rigorous, regular refactoring,
        2. Continuous integration,
        3. Simple design,
        4. Pair programming,
        5. Sharing the codebase between all or most programmers

    • 4. Read about : MoSCow prioritization
    All requirements are important, but they are prioritized to deliver the greatest and most immediate business benefits early. Developers will initially try to deliver all the Must have, Should have and Could have requirements but the Should and Could requirements will be the first to be removed if the delivery timescale looks threatened.
    The plain English meaning of the prioritization categories has value in getting customers to better understand the impact of setting a priority, compared to alternatives like High, Medium and Low.
    The categories are typically understood as:[3]
    Must have
    Requirements labeled as Must have are critical to the current delivery timebox in order for it to be a success. If even one Must have requirement is not included, the project delivery should be considered a failure (note: requirements can be downgraded from Must have, by agreement with all relevant stakeholders; for example, when new requirements are deemed more important). MUST can also be considered an acronym for the Minimum Usable SubseT.
    Should have
    Requirements labeled as Should have are important but not necessary for delivery in the current delivery timebox. While Should have requirements can be as important as Must have, they are often not as time-critical or there may be another way to satisfy the requirement, so that it can be held back until a future delivery timebox.
    Could have
    Requirements labeled as Could have are desirable but not necessary, and could improve user experience or customer satisfaction for little development cost. These will typically be included if time and resources permit.
    Won't have (this time)
    Requirements labeled as Won't have have been agreed by stakeholders as the least-critical, lowest-payback items, or not appropriate at that time. As a result, Won't have requirements are not planned into the schedule for the next delivery timebox. Won't have requirements are either dropped or reconsidered for inclusion in a later timebox. (Note: occasionally the term Would like to have is used; however, that usage is incorrect, as this last priority is clearly stating something is outside the scope of delivery).

    5. Read about : Lean Waste
    Lean manufacturing makes obvious what adds value, by reducing everything else (which is not adding value). This management philosophy is derived mostly from the Toyota Production System (TPS) and identified as "lean" only in the 1990s

    6. Read about : KANBAN
    Kanban is a scheduling system for lean manufacturing and just-in-time manufacturing. Kanban is an inventory control system to control the supply chain. Taiichi Ohno, an industrial engineer at Toyota, developed kanban to improve manufacturing efficiency. Kanban is one method to achieve JIT.

    HI Team,

    I have two questions.

    1. Who has to decide whether to go with Traditional water fall model or Agile (which method from multiple models). Is this decided by customer or vendor or both. Should this be documented in Scope of the project.

    2. Who will be held responsible for the team formation? As per process, customer's are approaching the sales team who has to pass the same to head of delivery for start of the project after finalisation every thing from sales side.. Now, the question here is.. 1. What are the actions to be taken up by the head of delivery. 2. Will he be held responsible for identification of Scrum Master/ Project Manager or Enterprise architecture. 3. Will he be part of scrum team or what will be his place in scrum methodology.

    3. In traditional waterfall model, HOD identifies and assigns the Project Manager and Enterprise architecutre (This is the person who will create the backbone of the project in terms of technology or infrastructure requirements) but here in scrum, I am not able to understand this point clearly. Who are the prime members in the team at that point of time.



    Regards
    Vikas Sheel Gupta

    Hi Siddharth, As I mentioned during training session, can you please advise is it mandatory to have ASM and ASF certification to go ahead with Agile-Project Management training/certification. As am into Project Management can you please suggest if I should be going to Agile Project Management certification as well and if you can just brief about how is it different from ASM.

    1) It is not mandatory to do ASF to go ahead with Agile Project Management
    2) Agile Project Management is not mandatory or a necessity.
    3) Last and important, any certification should be done either there is a need of it (from the organization or client or any forthcoming opportunity) or it is being sponsored by someone (for e.g. the org. you working for) or any certification will directly benefit you or it has been quit long time since you have upgraded /up-skilled yourself. If none of the reasons are valid DON'T DO ANY CERTIFICATION.

    In context to Agile there are no specific things mentioned for Project Initiation as there are several Agile Methodologies. If you go by Scrum then Product Owner and the business people with whom PO deals takes care of it.
