    “A hero ventures forth from
    the world of common day into
    a region of supernatural
    wonder: fabulous forces are
    there encountered and a
    decisive victory is won: the
    hero comes back from this
    mysterious adventure with the
    power to bestow boons on his
    fellow man.”

    THE 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.
