We embrace agile methods as the engine driving innovative solutions and collaboration to amplify economic, ecologic and social benefits across our planet.

Through this work we have come to value:

Cross functional team collaboration over specialization, process and tools
Modularity over tightly-coupled solutions
Continuous customer collaboration over inflexible contracts.
Useful continuous delivery over a single comprehensive delivery
Extending development through manufacturing over fixing problems in the field
Useful continuous documentation over comprehensive documentation

That is, while there is value in the items on the right,
we value the items on the left more.
