Agile Manifesto Simplified

JB Rainsberger took a stab at simplifying the Agile Manifesto.

Original (24 words):

  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding to change over following a plan

I’ll see your 3 bullets (24 words), JB,

  • People working together over precise rules and pre-packaged solutions
  • Working software over promises
  • Doing what’s needed over doing what we said was needed

and raise (well, reduce) you:

  • People working together over dogma
  • Working software over promises
  • Doing what’s needed now

24 words to 13 words. Same context? You decide.

More to follow 🙂
