What is the Agile Manifesto and what are the 12 principles?
The Agile Manifesto is a set of values that aim to guide the way agile teams work. It was authored by 17 independent software practitioners who landed on four core values after considerable deliberation. The 12 Principles then act as guiding practices that support the team in implementing and working with agility.
This health check lets you remind your team about these principles and helps the team reflect on how their daily practice aligns with these principles. From this, it helps to ensure that teams are aligned and have strategies in place that allow the team to be strong, connected and working from the same foundation.
The Agile Manifesto
We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value:
Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
Working software over comprehensive documentation
Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
Responding to change over following a plan
That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.
