The most efficient and effective method of
conveying information to and within a development
team is face-to-face conversation.
Continuous attention to technical excellence
and good design enhances agility.
Business people and developers must work
together daily throughout the project.
Agile processes promote sustainable development.
The sponsors, developers, and users should be able
to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.
Welcome changing requirements, even late in
development. Agile processes harness change for
the customer's competitive advantage.
The best architectures, requirements, and designs
emerge from self-organizing teams.
At regular intervals, the team reflects on how
to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts
its behavior accordingly.
Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
Working software over comprehensive documentation
Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
Responding to change over following a plan
Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer
through early and continuous delivery
of valuable software.
