Manifesto for Agile Software Development
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 items on the left more.
