Agile principle #10: Simplicity: the art of maximizing the work not done.
Peter & Hubert demonstrate this with pictures of the solar eclipse. Tool used by Peter – a cereal box:
Hubert is more sophisticated (or so he thinks), he uses a telescope:
Now consider value: if value is defined as having an amazing experience, is Hubert’s scope (with a substantial price ticket) really worth it? And if we want to study solar prominences, is either Peter’s or Hubert’s investment enough? It all depends, and that is the meaning behind principle #10 – do the simplest thing that could possibly work – not simpler.
We hope you had a great experience with the eclipse, both Peter and Hubert did!
