The so called Agile Manifesto has created so much excitement in the software development world and beyond. It is time that all those who oppose Agile methods in software development got their own manifesto and here it is. The unagile manifesto:
The Unagile Manifesto
We are rediscovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value:
- Follwing a plan over responding to change
- Contract negotation over customer collaboration
- Comprehensive documentation over working software
- Process and tools over individuals and interactions
That is, while there is some supposed value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more. The Unagile Manifesto is based on the Unagile Principles.
