The Principles Behind The Manifesto
The customer is at the center of everything we do. We are responsible for continuously delivery of the infrastructure and services they need.
In an infrastructure or shared services team the only constant is change. From change in requirements to change in applications and technologies. In order to be successful we must adapt and welcome change, even late in the deployment.
The most efficient and effective method of conveying information is with a face-to-face conversation.
When we defer to expertise and allow motivated individuals to drive projects and decisions we end up with the best architectures, requirements, designs and systems. Leadership should cultivate talent and provide an environment where teams can self-organize.
Simplicity the art of maximizing the amount of work not done is essential to a sustainable environment.
It is okay to fail as long as you fail quickly and loudly.
Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility.
At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly.
