Initiating an Agile Project For Developers
A 59 Seconds Agile Article
This article provides a discussion on ‘Initiating an Agile Project’ and looks to discuss what Agile is and the processes involved when starting an Agile project.
Initiating an Agile Project
By only creating documentation just before it’s needed, and ensuring that the documentation is in the most useful form that it can be in, your team can save both time and effort.
In the example we previously looked at, the product was developed much faster and more accurately when the team used just-in-time documentation. The stakeholders were involved in the creation of the project vision. They were also involved throughout the product development, through scheduled ceremonies, where the latest development could be reviewed and feedback offered.
They haven’t wasted time creating documentation for parts of a product that could end up being obsolete. Just-in-time documentation allows the team to get started on the development process sooner, which in turn means that they can deliver value sooner.

User Stories Applied
A 59 Seconds Agile Book Review
User Stories Applied by Mike Cohn is one of our favourite books on Agile User Stories. The book starts with an overview into user stories, and details what a user story is and the different aspects of them. He then discusses how to go about writing a user story, and provides details of the INVEST criteria that can be used to determine if the story is meeting all of its objectives. Next Mike gives an in depth discussion of who user stories are written for and where to begin when gathering the details for them. The book then discusses acceptance testing user stories, including how to go about specifying these criteria and the responsibilities of the development team and customers during this process.
