Do no documentation because it is a waste of lane Do just enough documentation to support the development and use of the product DO Sufficient documentation to prove you have done a good Job Do more documentation than usual because Agile Is risky Agile Manifesto mandates zero documentation Waterfall is not a lightweight process The practitioners did not like to work in a formal system and hence did not like any methodology at all Waterfall experience did not add value to their resume Waterfall model failed to meet the demand for speed and was not friendly toward changing business needs and priorities SAFe Program Consultant (SPC Certified Scrum Master (CSM) Professional Scrum Master ii (PSM ii)
