The Waterfall Manifesto (Just for fun)
Our experience has taught us to value:
- Processes and tools over individuals and interactions
- Comprehensive documentation over quality software
- Contract negotiation over customer collaboration
- Following THE initial plan over responding to change
That is, while you could be very lucky to work in a project with the items on the right (intelligent developers and customers working together, what are these agilists smoking?!?), you will never be fired for applying items on the left (or if you are, this is very unlucky or because you didn’t choose IBM).
