The seventh agile principle: Working software is the primary measure of progress

The eighth agile principle: Sustainable development, able to maintain a constant pace

The ninth agile principle: Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design

The tenth agile principle: Simplicity - the art of maximizing the amount of work not done - is essential
