One Size Does Not Fit All
And here's the Agile framework to prove it. Based on extensive research and observation, the Crystal family of Agile methodologies encourages teams to develop and refine new methodologies for each new project. It might sound chaotic, but the Crystal approach helps teams systematically establish their own custom agile methodology based on various aspects of their project and team. The result is clear communication, focused development, and frequent delivery to the customer, in spite of the inevitable differences between projects.

In this mini-course, Kent McDonald introduces the key roles, practices, and principles of Crystal project teams. You'll hear about the Seven Properties of Successful Teams, and their varying levels of importance. Kent also discusses the practices, techniques, roles, and life cycles used to support development teams in a Crystal environment, emphasizing the lightweight, low-overhead practices of Crystal Clear. Especially for small, co-located teams, these practices create a dynamic, creative environment focused on working effectively, in whatever way works best for that particular project.
