Agile Principles : # 9 & 10

9. Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility.

Products should be reviewed after each iteration to ensure real improvement is taking place.

10. Simplicity—the art of maximizing the amount of work not done—is essential.

Agile is about keeping processes simple and streamlining the entire cycle, and the Agile principles help keep that on track. Even the most minor distractions or unnecessary tasks can slow progress. Embrace automation tools whenever possible.
