14. Deliver Value > Exploit Your Agility

Exploit Your Agility

Simplicity of code and process are aesthetically pleasing. Yet there’s a more important reason why agility helps you create great software: it improves your ability to recognize and take advantage of new opportunities.

If you could predict to the hour how long your project would take, know what risks would and wouldn’t happen, and completely eliminate all surprises, you wouldn’t need agility—you would succeed with any development method.

However, what you don’t know is exciting. A new crisis or happy discovery next week could completely change the rules of the game. You may discover a brilliant new technique that simplifies your code, or your customer may develop a new business practice that saves time and money.
