Manifesto for Agile Software Developers

Manifesto for Agile Software Developers

We are uncovering better software developers by writing working software and helping others write working software.
Through this work we have come to value:

Software developers over management consultants

Working software over vague allusions to nebulous concepts like "business value"

Customers who deal directly with software developers over customers who prefer to deal with non-technical middlemen who add no value in the communication process

Respecting the software developer's technical authority and desire to do good work over negotiating quality downwards to meet short-term goals

That is, while there is value in things like "Scrum Masters", "Project Managers", "Product Owners" and "Agile Coaches", we value skilled, motivated software developers more. Because they are actually writing the software.
