Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable results.
Welcome changing requirements, even late in the process. Agile processes harness change for the customer's competitive advantage.
Deliver working processes frequently, with a preference to the shorter timescale.
We must work with our clients together daily throughout our engagement.
Build processes around motivated individuals.
Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.
The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a business team is face-to-face conversation.
Working results is the primary measure of progress.
Agile processes promote sustainable development.
The managers, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.
Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility.
Simplicity--the art of maximizing the amount of work not done--is essential.
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.
