Using TDD, you design code by writing code. While this sounds circular, it means that you write client test code that serves as both an example and a definition of what you want the object code to do. For example, if you were writing a hotel booking system, you would write tests for placing a booking, adding customer details, retrieving the details, and so on, and then assert that the correct results are returned. Agile Modeling The Agile Modeling (AM) methodology10 is a “chaordic”11 collection of practices, guided by principles and values, that should be applied by software professionals on a day-to-day basis.
We discuss the trade-off between scope and timescales in Chapter 9, but getting developers to estimate and monitor the time spent on their own work is particularly important if you want them to actually try to meet the estimates.

We Want Broad Steps That Provide General Guidance Given the rate of technology change in our business, many elements of software development are empirical in nature. We can’t attempt to provide a foolproof “algorithmic” sequence of micro-instructions describing how to go about writing software. An agile process like ICONIX doesn’t do this. It provides a broad-stroke sequence of granular steps—signposts, if you like—that help point us in the direction of our ultimate goal of a working software system.
