Hello,

During the development process the agile principles,
although they are abstract, they are the most concrete
thing you can bring over from one project to another.

What are the by-products you have seen, are more likely to
be useful to bring over from one project to another?

For example, a few of my favourites are:
- templates for use-case scenarios
- api's
- etc.

Kind regards,

Gian

Certainly examples across the board are the easiest things to reuse.
Certainly APIs and use case examples are useful, but I think anytime you have to produce something, it's helpful to have an example to follow.
So for a project manager, having example plans to work from is useful.
For testers, examples of test strategies are helpful.
And many developers get a lot of leverage from patterns.

We discuss this in practice 17 in the book. There are lots of challenges even with examples - finding good examples being the biggest.
Some strategies we talk about are:
- creating communities to promote sharing of good examples (and other assets)
- standardizing on tools, templates, and technologies so that examples are more easily shared

As reuse efforts scale for larger organizations, you may create asset repositories and actively fund creation of reusable assets - but that goes beyond your question.
