Endurance follows these principles based on “Agile Manifesto”:
Endurance highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software and hardware solutions.
Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer’s competitive advantage. Providing an additional service to customer that makes theirs business more profitable.
Deliver working software and hardware frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale. Done is better than perfect.
Business partners, software engineers, and hardware developers work together daily throughout the project. Business view is as important as technical one.
Build projects around motivated individuals. We hire only self-motivated, focused and disciplined people. Endurance organization is always supportive. Give them the environment, support their needs, and trust them to get the job done.
The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation. If face-to-face doesn’t work, then Skype, Viber, LinPhone, Google Hangout, WhatsApp.
Working solution is the primary measure of progress. Sold solution is a measure of success.
Agile processes promote sustainable development.
The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.
Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility.
Simplicity–the art of maximizing the amount of work not done–is essential.
The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams.
At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly.
Management can be automated. If it can be automated well enough, a hierarchy is not necessary. Small groups need to be able to switch quickly between adhocracy and democracy while preserving fairness.
