The Cycle

The central process in agile work is the cycle.

Steps within a cycle

  • Each cycle has a clearly defined time of beginning and end.

  • Each cycle has fixed resources.

  • Each cycle has a flexible scope of results

  • At the end of each cycle there is a finished result that can be delivered to the Customer and provides value to the Customer.

There are steps that happen before, during and after the cycle.

The team can also consist of 0 people, for instance if the champ plans to create teams for sub-cycles or prefers to work on his own.

Working in cycles solves the trilemma of today's project management.
