The next several chapters describe specific practices for each of the APM delivery framework layers. These practices should be considered a “system of practices,” because as a system, they reinforce each other as they align with agile principles. But they do more than align; they implement. Principles without practices are empty shells, whereas practices without principles tend to be implemented by rote, without judgment. Without principles, we don’t know how to implement practices—for example, without a Simplify principle we tend to overdo the formality and ceremony of almost any practice. Principles guide practices. Practices instantiate principles. They go hand in hand.
