Looking deeper on Manifesto of Agile Software Development

Common Problem in Agile World! The confusion over Agile Manifesto so though it would be good to write something for bigger audience and here you go I share my view and will  be waiting for your comments.

"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

"Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software."

» Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer's competitive advantage.
» Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to
the shorter timescale.
» Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project.

"Build projects 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 development team is faceto- face conversation.
» Working software is the primary measure of progress.
» Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, 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.

Let me know guys what you think! Love to hear from you... about your opinions on the same.
