The Manifesto for Agile Software Development
is a public statement of values and twelve principles, shared by a group of senior software practitioners, which forms the basis of the many of the “Agile” frameworks currently in use.
This statement, offered referred to simply as the “Agile Manifesto” reads:
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 the items on the left more.
