Agile Manifesto

I recently became a signatory of the Agile Manifesto and I wanted to share it with you:

The Agile Manifesto
We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value:
  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding to change over following a plan.
That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.

You'll notice that it does not advocate any tools or practices, but simply the driving concepts behind agile processes. Regardless of what you think about Lean/Agile practices, I hope we can all agree that these are solid principles to move towards. If you'd like to become a signatory you can sign up here.
