Some Background on Agile Software Development:

The Manifesto for Agile Software Development,
written in 2001 by 17 industry thought leaders, reads, in part:

"We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others to 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. "
