The Agile Manifesto

We open up better ways to develop software by doing it ourselves and helping others do it. Through this activity we have learned to appreciate these values:

  1. Individuals and interactions more than processes and tools

  2. Functioning software more than comprehensive documentation

  3. Cooperation with the customer more than contract negotiation

  4. Responding to change more than following a plan

This means that although we find the values on the right side important, we estimate the values on the left side to be higher.
