20 Years is Enough! It’s Time to Update the Agile Principles and Values

Agile originated, in part, as a reaction to twentieth century bureaucratic excesses. The Agile principles and values were created when Agile was in its infancy; they were more aspiration-based than experience based at that time. Twenty years later, the Agile principles and values remain unchanged, despite the fact that we now have thousands of times as much experience implementing Agile practices as we did in 2001. It’s time to apply Inspect and Adapt to the Agile principles and values themselves, and bring them fully into the twenty-first century.
