There is a myth that every iteration must be focused on customer value. Actually no customer value is delivered until the release. A webinar given on July 21, 2008 by Alan Shalloway relates an actual project using quality coding techniques and Lean principles to show that while releases should be based on customer value, individual stories should be based on a combination of customer value, risk mitigation and business value.
