Manifesto for Agile Software DevelopersManifesto 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.
