3 Interactions Between Practices Although Agile Modelling defines a set of practises that will promote its main aims, it is not necessarily very clear how they relate. 1) shows at the category level, how the four core categories support each other. This diagram shows that “simplicity” makes testing easier and helps drive small increments. The application of the “simplicity” principle may also result in an increment that re-factors the design to improve simplicity. In turn, each increment should be validated and this validation (or at least the results of the validation) may influence the next (or later) iterations.

3. You must “freeze” the requirements. The point here is that many people believe that you must be able to freeze the requirements before you start to model. In theory this would be great. If you had all the requirements presented to you before you start modelling, then all the questions about what the system should do would be answered at the start. It would also make deciding on what should be in the model easier. However, that is theoretical, in reality requirements change (even in the smallest projects).
