Manifesto for Agile (Software) Development
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.
Or, another version (quick and dirty?)... in this set, 'cheap' is 'no frills', and 'make right' means to 'fine tune':
Make it Cheap
Make it Fast
Make it Work
Make it Right
