What is this agile stuff anyway, and why does it work?
Agile teams don't do this. They don't use that. What do they do? What, exactly, makes a project or a team "Agile"? Without lots of pre-ordained processes and techniques to guide (or restrict) them, Agile teams rely on key Agile values and principles as guardrails. Those values guide their decisions, and help them create the right amount of risk mitigation for their project, while still building business value. Understanding those values and principles and how they can be applied enables a richer understanding of Agile methods and their value.

This short course and related paper provide an overview of the principles collectively referred to as "Agile development." In this session, Kent focuses on explaining the overall value system behind the various Agile approaches and techniques, and why those values can lead to better projects.
