Founder & Coordinator
Applying what has been learned through life to life is the name of the game.
Each person has talents and know-how, getting each unique individuals skill set to be put to good use is how I envision this venture moving forwards.
As for the rest of this short intro, well, here is what I refer to as my little prayer, that I say to myself every morning:
“Yesterday is in the past, it is what I do today that matters.”
Not much more that I can really say except that we aim to look towards the future, tackling things one project at a time.

Friends Helping Us Along The Way
Marketing & PR
Enginewitty is a funny thing. It’s like this witty little engine that just keeps moving forward. He thinks he can, he thinks he can, he thinks he can. Bit of think tank that one. He knows he can, he knows he can, he knows he can. Might even have a solid foundation for motivation. He did! He did! He did! It helps to always be planning alternatives outside of the proverbial box.
‘Witty’ is a father of nine children and has a heavy background in management and marketing – both on and offline. He was one of the first people to test out the Yahoo IM (instant messenger) and, an early miner of Bitcoin – when it was still possible with just a CPU. Combining all the knowledge he has amassed, it was only natural to come on board with FullAlt and help spread crypto across the globe.
Snook is the helping hand needed along the way to help keep our sanity!
& She is of great help in communications within the company activities and both with the world out there on the internet!
The Ins & Outs of FULLALT
When we talk the talk, we also need to walk the walk!
Decentralization has been the goal of so many endeavours out there, yet we have all seen how too many of these endeavours seem to become more centralized in nature as things move on.
One form of decentralization that has worked, is the utilization of blockchain technology.
In so much that the data is immutably stored on multiple data storage units, usually all over the world.
The only current centralization issue with blockchain technology is the use of the world wide web “www“ aka “internet“. It is not “independent” as it is “dependent” on “the internet” as such.
Keeping that in mind and understanding that it is only a matter of time until solutions are developed to further enhance the decentralization of data storage and communications, it is clear that we need to be proactive and not reactive.
Our goals shall be set and expanded upon in a way so as to keep this in mind when taking on new challenges.
There are so many opportunities to be a part of the decentralization process and this is our contribution to the brave new world of decentralization.
Blockchain technology has brought about the potential to decentralize and diversify everything we do online.
More so, it has opened up the doors to alternatives which were never imaginable before, such as digital tokens or digital currencies.
Over the past decade we have seen many ideas thrown around and tried out via tokenization. Testing the thought patterns of many and likewise trying to expand the boundaries and borders imposed and sometimes accepted by us.
As with anything, complacency tends to kill the explorer in us. As creatures of habit, we tend to get ‘comfortable’ with certain ideas and methodologies, thus slowing down our expansion into the ‘unknown’. An almost self-inflicted retardation of evolution.
As the old saying goes “Think out of the box”, there has to be those among us who tackle the obstacles and try to overcome and beat the ‘norms’ achieved to date. Otherwise there would never be any progress. It is this that inspires many of us out there to go out of our comfort zones and try to achieve and create what many fear, to go above and beyond what we currently have and know.
Many times we have what it takes, all the options are actually right in front of us. All it takes is putting the pieces of the puzzle together so that the grand picture can be seen and enjoyed by all. In order to do this we can’t be complacent, we must go out and make happen what we envision as “being possible”.
So instead of a ‘rinse and repeat’ type of behaviour, we are embarking upon a logical approach to applying the tech that we have to the everyday needs of people.
Instead of sitting back and waiting for options to be put out there by those who love to control everything, it is up to all of us to create the options for humanity to choose from. Each and every human as the unique individuals we all are. Respecting each other as equals and ensuring that we all be given as many opportunities in life that we are willing to take on.
Do we have the tools to access all the alternatives that are out there to choose from?
We are living in very confusing times. There has never been more information & disinformation available to everyone. The overflow of information and its counterpart, is something that we all need to deal with. Our goals should be to learn how to use all this new access all this information for good and not abuse.
Sure, there will always be those who only look after themselves. People who literally do not care about others and abuse all this information. Those types of people have always been around, that is a fact of life that needs to be known and we should all be kept aware of. It is easy to forget what all evils lay out there. However, if we try to do good, if we give it everything we have to make the world a better place, deep down inside I believe that we can succeed. I dare say that I know it.
Technology hasn’t stopped at ‘information flow’. We are living in a time when we can be at almost any part of this world in less than 24 hours. WOW. What a time. What used to be a ‘one way trip’ for most people up to the 1980’s hass now become a norm. So our logistics has come to a point where we can have anything from anywhere, or be anywhere within an almost irrelevant time span. So, the overwhelming speed at which technology has expanded has given us solutions to logistical issues that are being made available to almost anyone who needs them. Another problem solved and which can be utilized for the good of mankind.
Let’s think of it this way, we can all get in touch with almost anyone out there, thanks to the internet and other communication devices. We are living in a time where people are living in almost all corners of this earth. There is practically no reason for anything that is available to one human, that it can’t be available to anyone anywhere else on this planet.
How far has technology gone?
We have cases of governments literally using face recognition on every corner of any street. We have ideas of cashless societies, in which there will be absolutely no privacy for anyone in any way, manner or form. We have scientists messing with all sorts of things. Our technology has gotten to a point where humans are literally mixing DNA from different animals and E.coli bacteria/faeces to produce what many believe to be impossible in mother natures way of things. Seeds for our every day plants and foods are being messed around with at a level of ‘genetic engineering’ which most of us can’t fathom, or don’t want to accept. Things are definitely changing at light speed in these areas of technology and our options, our choices, our alternatives are being reduced instead of multiplied. Yes, the exact opposite of what should be happening is actually happening. We have less and less alternatives in life. Yet, even with technology being able to do practically anything any person could imagine, our options are being funnelled. We can all contribute to making the options that are possible, available to one and all on this earth.
The point is, that there is almost no end to how far the tech is going and we as human beings are almost being forced into becoming the ‘guinea pigs’ of this world wide laboratory that we see being created right in front of our very own eyes. Yet we have the technologies available to us and we can all choose to use them in ways that add alternatives to all mankind. It is our choice.
We are living in a day and age in which language barriers are no longer a barrier. Thanks to simple tools such as online translators people can communicate with each other without knowing each others languages.
So our options in life should be so wide and diverse that we should be able to have such a wide scope of choices that keep growing by the minute.
Our alternatives in life should be what some would dare say “unlimited”.
Maybe this is what drives me as the owner and creator of this business initiative. It is clear that we can make life better and one of the keys to making that happen is to ensure that people all over the world are given the ability to choose alternatives available. Something that many of us feel is not happening in the mainstream of things.
Transparency and decentralization are what is needed all over the spectre. That is the one and only conclusion that I can derive from all of the above. The tech is out there, the means to apply the tech by our own choice are obviously still lacking.
So it is something that many of us need to take on as a challenge. To help make available what needs to be available to everyone. Everything from tools for better communications and data handling all the way through to crypto tokens/currencies and even tools that can be used for every day real life applications which are not in any direct way dependent on the internet.
There are many out there who believe that they have solutions, but they lack the tools to make their ideas come to life.
Our goal as a company is to tackle these needs for the tools which can eventually help expand the alternatives and choices available to people all over this world.
For this analysis of the issues currently in the market, we have resourced the services of an independent consultant who stated the following:
THE CRYPTO COMMUNITES
Rather create two or three (or more) of the same products and services because none of them wish to work together, instead they all create a partial product or service resembling what is already available (in the Crypto offer).
Collaboration = more funds concentrated towards a better product/service.
- TECH & TOKEN DISTRIBUTION
Most blockchains claim to be decentralized, yet in reality in most of the blockchains out there with crypto tokens on them the bulk of the tokens are owned by one entity or a tight group of collaborators who ensured that this be the case from the word “Go”. All these types of tokens offer only a “shift of power”, not any form of real decentralization.
Many if not most projects are best defined as a “cash grab”, a means for only a few to get much richer.
i.e. The most influential percentage of token ownership is reserved exclusively for a small (usually tight) group.
If the projects that claim to be “decentralized” truly believed in their product/service, they would start from a fair and equal point in which all the people who wish to get on board are included.
“Equal benefit” does not mean “Equal outcome”.
If everyone in the world got let’s say one hundred tokens. Within minutes, some will have zero and some will have thousands, if not millions.
Some will capitalize on the opportunity, others will walk away feeling as if they have ‘lost something’ or ‘given up something’.
“EQUAL OPPORTUNITY” is the goal.
Way too many projects out there are overcomplicating things.
i.e. Sign up procedures.
“It isn’t only the money that matters, give people options, make it easy, user friendliness is what people want. i.e. an eighty four year old granny uses Facebook without any problems!”
This is as old as humanity. There are many professionals out there who are extracting profits daily. It takes a lot of experience, knowhow and tech to be able to enter this arena of the crypto scene.
The vulnerability of tokens in the crypto scene is high that they are not attractive to real world businesses.
STABILITY vs VOLATILITY
Again, a result of the ‘power game’.
- EVERYTHING IS A POPULARITY CONTEST
We are seeing a change in everything. Popularity affects and determines so much of all markets that facts and logic have little to almost nothing to do with it.
Certain names, media hype, even posts put out by certain names in the scene influence the market trends, to the point where the tech is almost irrelevant. It is all about “Who” and not “What”.
All of the efforts for decentralization end up adding to the further deep end of centralization.
Each and every individual needs to be independent as far as life is concerned. There are so many issues with the centralization of information, wealth and management that miles of texts have been written on the topics. Yet, we never seem to see the tools necessary being put out there.
‘Fear of loss’, instead of ‘wealth through sharing’, this seems to be what fuels the results we have seen to date in all the efforts to decentralize our dependencies.
We need an approach that shall ensure that blockchain technology, including but not limited to the ones already firmly in existence and utilised daily are made available to one and all. Likewise this approach must ensure that the potential wealth can be shared amongst one and all and not just a “chosen few”.
Bringing the internet to blockchain, namely, making it easy to tokenize your experiences and input.
Making possible what to date has only been “talked about”.
Why make a new one? Tokenize the existing one, without changing Wikipedia, simply make the option available to one and all.
Promoting the individuality of all people and their rights to express themselves as such.
How do we go about fixing all or some of the above listed items?
To basically cut a long story short and to sum it all up.
The broadest goal of this endeavour is: Unification instead of division among people who use the internet and who want a better life for everyone on this planet.
The idea of ‘Thinking out of the box” is more relevant now than ever before in the history of mankind.
There are many great people out there who have been trying to overcome the centralization of power and wealth. This has been more than evident in the crypto and blockchain scenes.
Information (data) is = wealth.
This has been seen in the current day world within the reliance we now have on technology to get around our daily lives and most so to be informed in a timely manner.
However we come up against a wall every time as the centralization of information has always come about as a result of dependence on wealth.
So to overcome this we need to look at things from different angles, including but not limited to:
Decentralization of the tools that bridge efforts for decentralization.
Instead of relying upon the centralized models of management, the ideas are to decentralize data and wealth.
Instead of approaching things in the ‘traditional’ manner, we should approach the idea of decentralization in very non-traditional ways.
Building tools that shall ensure the highest possible levels of decentralization of data and wealth.
This concept shall meet a lot of resistance from the kleptocrats who have done nothing but “pump and dump” in all areas of business out there.
By making it possible for people to have access to the wealth that is already out there we are in fact building an entire new mentality towards everything that we know.
We can help make possible what was not possible to date.
Providing alternatives to people.
Approaching all projects on a level of nurturing the need for each human beings individuality.
Looking at the real life obstacles each person faces and the building of character which leads to the potential of building the foundation of society, in which two people communicate and find common ground. As this process repeats so to does the next level of society grow and so on and so on.
In our efforts to achieve things, we the people have no objection to anyone succeeding if we believe that the race is fair. Which is logical in every respect.
However how can we ensure a fair and reasonable race?
If not giving it our best to help ensure improvements are made in the fields of fair and equal opportunity for all participants. Then what direction should one take!
‘Utopia’ or Realism:
Although there is no real world ‘utopia’ out there, the idea that we can approach our goals morally in this crazy world of light speed advancements in technology, this is what gives us our light at the end of the tunnel.
Improvements are evident in all continents. In particular with the diversity of mass communications available to us and the inability of the traditional media to adapt and keep up with these changes, there are more reasons for additional alternatives now than ever before. We are definitely facing a time in which we need to increasingly add tools for each and every individual so as to assist them in their efforts to keep up. Our goals are to ensure that everyone be given alternatives that can help in their goals to set themselves free of the tyranny imposed by those who enforce the sole empowerment of the collectives.
Instead of polarization, the idea of introducing tools needed to assist in the accessibility to alternative options, user friendliness and overall utilization of the diverse arrange of offers available to everyone, that is the power and value behind this approach in the never ending array of opportunities out there.
Taking logical approaches in a world in which logic is too often considered ‘optional’, depending on what the topic is! This could be considered somewhat too alternative in nature, as this approach helps to build the idea of a sovereign individual. Definitely something that many fear, especially those that have much to lose along with those that serve them, knowingly or not. Yet it is a wonderful thought that every human being as an individual has the options made available in their pursuit of success and/or happiness.
Why haven’t we chosen the path of “Selling a melon?”
Why should we?
Is it only “Money” that is the goal?
Isn’t that something that we have all come to agree upon as being morally wrong. One would at least hope so. So instead of giving a song and dance leading to the classic pump and dumps that most of us have seen so many others out there do to date. Our approach is the exact opposite; it is a long term approach. Looking towards a future together with all the individuals we work with.
We believe that we can succeed in these goals, we know that it is better to do business as transparently as possible in this crazy ‘market’ we face.
We are not running from the responsibilities that this approach brings with it. In fact we embrace it. We endorse it and we believe in it. We know that we can set the example and that intent in itself is a huge success. It already sets us apart from many of those who have just come to accept the wrongs out there in the collectives as a “norm”.
Facing the reality, knowing the wrongs that are out there is just as important as knowing what our goals are.
Telling it as it is, may be somewhat unorthodox, at the least mildly different!
Let’s move forwards, let’s use the ability each and every one of us has to learn, to improve, to do better and constantly try to commit ourselves to the ideal of giving it our best to achieve good for one and all. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link!
“The goal of this endeavour is: Unification instead of division among people.”
The more alternatives that each individual has, helps to make the game more fair in that individuals have the ability to choose from more diverse arrays of options and increase their possibilities to expand and grow in their niche / business. No matter what restrictions may be imposed by the collectives, it is up to all of us to start thinking out of the box and be all inclusive. FullALT as a company made up of people who have experienced many different walks of life has set its objectives towards providing what we as ‘ordinary consumers’ feel will help everyone during our time on the internet.
Helping to gradually socialize the internet and not any one particular website, plus tokenizing it in the most diverse of manners can only help increase the number of people out there who expand the alternatives and offers that they have available in their lives.
The world of cryptocurrencies/tokens has somewhat mimicked the real world economics, which is nothing unusual, after all humans as creatures of habit are the ones controlling it.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with going about business in ways and mannerisms that are known, understood and that consumers feel comfortable with. However, this brings us back to the start. Progress is not dependent upon ‘comfort zones’, it is in fact dependent upon changes that are founded upon the ‘unknown’.
The limitations put upon the practical use of ‘tokens’ (data on blockchains) is determined by humans. Even though theoretically it is ‘unlimited’ in possibilities that are dependent on data storage, the limitations come about due to the restrictions determined by the users of this data.
Hence, the limitations are dependent on us and the technology being used.
Basically defining the future use cases of blockchain technology and the data ledgered on them.
Due to blockchains having the capability of being ‘decentralized’ in storage of data, the possibilities to exit outside of what is ‘known’ can be dwelled into and made possible and eventually a reality.
This does not have to resemble any use cases to date, it all depends on the visions of those who are prepared to go beyond the limits of the known.
FULLALT proposes the notion that there is no need for any one particular token to be the core of any transactions, nor the need for any one blockchain as such. Diversity is the one and only means on ensuring decentralization.
Communications between all these various blockchains and the abilities to utilize all the data on them shall be a major contributor to all the possibilities that the blockchains and data on them offer.
Usage of this data shall determine the importance and value of the data.
Instead of limiting the use cases to what is defined with classic ‘tokenization’ models, there are no limits to usage of blockchains once we do not limit ourselves to the classic monetary models.
There are no reasons why blockchains should be limited by ‘tokenization’.
This concept is for starters the idea that can seriously open up some new visions as to what all is possible.
Shall there be “tokens” issued?
Only by those endeavours that require tokenization, those endeavours that do not need tokenization shall not be tokenized. Apart from it being a total waste of capacities, it doesn’t differ from all the behaviour we have too often seen to date. Thinking out of the box.
How can we go forwards without “tokens”?
How did any of the endeavours through the course of history move forwards?
Synergy and determination!
Synergising the capacities that we have available, without limiting ourselves to the ‘classic’ models of management and ideas.
Complexity needs to be avoided if possible, as complexity brings about bureaucracy, which brings about corruption and inevitable disruption.
However, if in the event for the purposes of adding value to certain segments of this endeavour in future tokens are issued, they shall exclusively be defined as such and applicable only for the branch of business it is being issued for.
Let’s throw out the concepts known to date.
Well, all the things we know have successfully gotten an overabundance of clones and a lack of effective changes that lead to where people want to be.
Distribution of wealth is always an issue with all endeavours. Power and control of the wealth is what it always seems to lead to.
Any concept that differs from this well rehearsed scenario is denounced by those wanting the bulk of wealth and power. For obvious reasons.
Wealth sharing models based upon results often proved to be productive. i.e. “commission based rewards” yet they are dependent upon the values and needs of the individuals.
If we take the management to a level by which responsibilities and results are rewarded, then this opens the doors to diversity and independence within each department/management role.
By introducing this model of profit sharing, the results of all the departments lead to the success of the endeavour but with a catch:
Accomplishments within the departments are managed with a profit sharing basis for wealth distribution and not a “commission” model of distribution.
With this the motivation in each department and each individual within the department is given a warp speed boost.
The responsibilities of all individuals in the endeavour are equal in weight of importance and as a result each individual is motivated to assist each other instead of “overthrow” each other as the profit sharing runs across the entire spectre and not valued by “roles”.
& before anyone goes comparing it to any of the existing “profit sharing” models out there, please don’t compare as at the end of the day all of them have been successful and not so successful as they are based on “fiat” economics. While here we are based on decentralized models of economics and rewards that are transparent and ledgered on blockchains.
Transparency is the key to the success of profit sharing among all the relevant management/departments. If all involved see the truth, have direct access to the figures then there is nothing to hide, there is no reason or motivation for coups.
Fund allocation and usage.
Funds are to be used exclusively for the further expansion of tools and services that shall ensure added usage and value to the endeavour and the relevant branches/apps.
The profits are what fall under the above described ‘Profit sharing’ and not the initial funds raised.
Hence there is a 100% motivation to achieve the set tasks and goals.
Note: This is where the difference is.
FULL ALT as such is an umbrella style of organization that coordinates all the aspects of getting business ventures within its domain of priorities up and running.
It serves not only as a starting point for start-ups, but also as a formal entity that covers the needed red tape of the real world.
As a registered company FULL ALT can comply to all the business and legal needs in all negotiations and contractual agreements it enters.
Likewise it is an equal in all business transactions, because there is no need to avoid the jurisdictional requirements that exist out in the real world of business.
While each and every business endeavour shall as such be a branch of FULL ALTs daily business, each and every business venture shall be set up and running as a separate registered business, while during the time that it is being worked, the administration of it shall fall under the umbrella of FULL ALT.
During the transition period from “Start up” to actual registered company, the governance of the business shall be transferred to the investors as per the profit sharing models upon which FULL ALT is founded on.
Where and when applicable, tokenization of the business endeavour may take place and this shall be done so as to ensure the decentralization of each branch. As the applications and tools come to life, so too shall at each phase of implementation shall the decentralization and profit sharing be one step closer to the phase where it is “handed over to the people”.
So unlike any of the fund raising events seen to date, FULL ALT shall have a constant flow of funds and profits from its business expansion and decentralization.
An endeavour such as this with a profit sharing ecosystem all contributors are important.
The company FULL ALT as such serves as a contributor and as a coordination cell. With much more input than just ‘consulting’ the new business ventures that it embarks upon.
Instead of the traditional concept of “shares” and all the red tape, the goals here are to set up business ventures as Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAO) who are going about the process of making a Decentralized Autonomous Companies (DAC). Again, this term may have been seen in the past yet nowhere near anything that we are suggesting to do.
One of the similar models of thinking can be found in some of the Nordic States where shares are handed out to the workers, yet that, although similar in nature doesn’t quite cut it.
Imagine if ALL the allocated profits were spread out down the line.
Hard to comprehend as it is very rarely heard of, however as described above, profit sharing is the path we are taking and it shall surely not only bear the desired results, it shall show how a business can be managed fairly.
IN DEPTH – WHY PROFIT SHARING?
Is there a matrix? & How does this all work if there is a matrix?
As far as the means of programming people and having us all do things as per a “script”, a predefined code, we have all seen it within all cultures out there. With the internet becoming a communication tool that is available to everyone who has access to a computer or smartphone we are seeing the birth of a new era in thinking.
The established ideologies are all being questioned and put into a position which they don’t like. They are being put into question!
Hence, the evolution of this new era in ‘thinking’, of consciousness, which is definitely a sign of the times. Change is happening at a speed that has never been imagined, let alone considered. Technology is giving each and every individual the ability to express themselves on an international level. This alone has opened up the doors to opportunities that are new to the markets out there.
In all this chaos, the individual is once again put in the middle of it all. The mobs are so trying to control everything, yet the internet has given each and every human being the opportunity to express their individuality and consciousness.
So, the answer is to cater to the individuals and our needs as such.
Can this be done ‘fairly’, or at least ‘reasonably’?
Well, the answer to that question is definitely not as simple as it may seem at first glance. We are touching on various ecosystems, various ideological and cultural systems. This makes it almost impossible to satisfy the various ‘groups’ and ‘mobs’. However, if we cater to the needs of the individual instead trying to cater to the ‘wishes’ we are taking on a role where responsibility is the central focal point of our inner workings.
This type of approach to running a business is definitely not one that allows for chaos. Responsibilities mean that each member of the team has to face reality and not twist facts around to suit or meet their ‘wishes’. Which means that ‘what we want reality to be at this moment in time, is not reality”. This type of wishful thinking is defined as delusional, so there is no strategic place for it. At the end of the day, reality is reality. We are all responsible for our actions based upon a rational and logical approach based on reality.
This concept of responsibility makes it possible to move forwards, as we are not only realistically logical in our approach towards our business practices, we are also working towards achieving what we see as a vision of what possibilities could exist if we responsibly assist the individual.
This model of business helps build strength among us who are working together and definitely helps build integrity. Our growth as a business is dependent upon our inner abilities to take on our responsibilities as individuals who are working together.
The changes that we are seeing out there, thanks to the internet is still all new. Nobody can claim to ‘know’ where it is leading, as the long term future is ‘unknown’. This is a different thing and to make it work, we need to take on the responsibilities of our thoughts and actions. Looking at this reality straight in the eye, it becomes clear that our inner roles are all important and relevant to our overall success in our goals to contribute to the alternatives that are concentrated on the individuality of human beings.
FULL ALT may be concentrating on online business, yet there is an abundance of opportunity to expand into the real world markets. Physical goods and services are definitely fields that shall be looked into and possibly going above and beyond those that are exclusive to the internet.
Expansion of this business endeavour is inevitable, it is just a matter of time.
All of the business that FULL ALT does shall be aimed at producing alternatives to people. Alternatives that encompass what the market has to offer in terms of social economics.
FULL ALT shall at all times be open to ideas of inter-blockchain communications and cross-blockchain communications. By doing so, all of the endeavours that FULL ALT embarks upon shall be more than “just about the coins”. We are looking at the potential that is out there for the people involved.
Our business is revolving around bringing people to blockchain and not the other way around.
The world is so diverse and each person is so unique in their individuality that it is almost impossible to create an environment that can satisfy every persons wishes. However if we just take the potential ‘needs’ of people out there using the internet, then we can concentrate on them and stay focused on the goals at hand.
Inner Company Communications and Coordination:

“Why reinvent the wheel?”
Thinking out of the box, doesn’t necessarily in all circumstances include trying to reinvent proven to work project management practices.
Sure we can learn along the way!
& that is why we have incorporated the methods that allow for this open and objective approach to projects.
Below are the fundamentals of our project management approach.
They are all proven to work methods and approaches.
What is agile project management?
Agile project management is an iterative approach to delivering a project throughout its life cycle.
Iterative or agile life cycles are composed of several iterations or incremental steps towards the completion of a project. Iterative approaches are frequently used in software development projects to promote velocity and adaptability since the benefit of iteration is that you can adjust as you go along rather than following a linear path. One of the aims of an agile or iterative approach is to release benefits throughout the process rather than only at the end. At the core, agile projects should exhibit central values and behaviours of trust, flexibility, empowerment and collaboration.
- Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
- Working software over comprehensive documentation
- Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
- Responding to change over following a plan
- Customer satisfaction by early and continuous delivery of valuable software.
- Welcome changing requirements, even in late development.
- Deliver working software frequently (weeks rather than months)
- Close, daily cooperation between business people and developers
- Projects are built around motivated individuals, who should be trusted
- Face-to-face conversation is the best form of communication (co-location)
- Working software is the primary measure of progress
- Sustainable development, able to maintain a constant pace
- Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design
- Simplicity—the art of maximizing the amount of work not done—is essential
- Best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams
- Regularly, the team reflects on how to become more effective, and adjusts accordingly
For more information on Agile Project Management, we highly recommend the following:
Feature-driven development (FDD) is an iterative and incremental software development process. It is a lightweight or Agile method for developing software. FDD blends a number of industry-recognized best practices into a cohesive whole. These practices are driven from a client-valued functionality (feature) perspective. Its main purpose is to deliver tangible, working software repeatedly in a timely manner in accordance with the Principles behind the Agile Manifesto.
For the full article on Feature Driven Development, please click on the “Source” link or the full link below:
Feature-driven development is built on a core set of software engineering best practices aimed at a client-valued feature perspective.
- Domain Object modelling. Domain Object modelling consists of exploring and explaining the domain of the problem to be solved. The resulting domain object model provides an overall framework in which to add features.
- Developing by Feature. Any function that is too complex to be implemented within two weeks is further decomposed into smaller functions until each sub-problem is small enough to be called a feature. This makes it easier to deliver correct functions and to extend or modify the system.
- Individual Class (Code) Ownership. Individual class ownership means that distinct pieces or grouping of code are assigned to a single owner. The owner is responsible for the consistency, performance, and conceptual integrity of the class.
- Feature Teams. A feature team is a small, dynamically formed team that develops a small activity. Multiple minds are always applied to each design decision, and multiple design options are evaluated before one is chosen.
- Inspections. Inspections are carried out to ensure good quality design and code primarily by detection of defects.
- Configuration Management. Configuration management helps with identifying the source code for all features that have been completed to date and maintaining a history of changes to classes as feature teams enhance them.
- Regular Builds. Regular builds ensure there is always an up-to-date system that can be demonstrated to the client and helps highlight integration errors of source code for the features early.
- Visibility of progress and results. Managers steer a project using frequent, appropriate, and accurate progress reporting from all levels inside and outside the project based on completed work.

The Quality by Design model consists of the following steps:
- Establish the project design targets and goals.
- Define the market and customers that will be targeted.
- Discover the market, customers, and societal needs.
- Develop the features of the new design that will meet the needs.
- Develop or redevelop the processes to produce the features.
- Develop process controls to be able to transfer the new designs to operations.
