Agile {Admin} Manifesto


The agile manifesto states:
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


That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.
This sentiment is one we’ve latched onto as incredibly applicable to contractor-client working relationships. In fact, we’ve created our own version of the agile manifesto. We call it the Agile Admin Manifesto.
We are uncovering better ways of managing outsourced work by doing it and helping others do it.

Through these efforts we have come to value:

     
       Individuals and interactions over protections and promises

            Quality work product over comprehensive documentation up front

            Client 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.
