- We are completing components of the software step by step. Are we Agile?
- Which of the following is the main target in Agile?
- Business value for the supplier
- Business value for the customer
- Business value for the end-users
- What’s the difference between “sprint” and “iteration”?
- We create real increments in our project, but we don’t release them until the end of the project. Are we still Agile?
- What’s the main difference between unreleased increments and releases?
- What’s the rule in Crystal Clear about releases?
- What’s the right definition of Agile? What’s PRINCE2 Agile’s definition of Agile?
- What’s the Cargo Cult? I’m kidding, you don’t need to answer this ;)
- No; you need to create the “functions” or “features” incrementally, instead of components. There should be something you can demonstrate to the customer and end-users.
- It’s all about the end-users. When you satisfy them, the customer will eventually be happy, and the supplier will be successful.
- Nothing. “Sprint” is the Scrum term for “iteration”.
- Yes, you can be. You’re not getting all the benefits of Agile though.
- The audience:
- unreleased increments: customer and representatives from the end-users
- releases: end-users (and also the customer)
- At least one release every 3 months.
- Agile is the use of an adaptive development lifecycle. PRINCE2 Agile knows Agile as the use of commonly known Agile behaviors and practices.
