True Agile - Principle - Simplicity
Simplicity--the art of maximizing the amount of work not done--is essential.
The KISS rule (Keep it stupid and simple) applies over here.
Making things simpler is more difficult. Implementing this principle will reduce the work to the bare minimum and lets the team focus on the simplest possible solution for creating the same business value. The team members need to ask themselves with everything they do “is this really necessary?”. It’s a new way of thinking which kills over-doing of everything and helps the team to keep the things and process simple.
The main advantages of simplification are speed and reduced complexity. You can delivery business value faster and the delivered product is less complex. This principle applies to processes and communications as well.
Keep simple coding, simple design, simple testing, simple automation and simple processes. Do direct and clear communication which can be understood by the stakeholders. Keep complex things also simpler by dividing them into simple small parts or tasks. Identify what is essential to do and what is really not required to be done. Remove non-value adding processes from the system.
Simple things are easy to understand, and straightforward to implement.
