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.
