A personal manifesto (Agile Values)

In my decisions and actions, I balance the following:

  • I care about the people who use what I create.
  • I care about the quality of what I create.
  • I care about the people with whom I create.
  • I honor my commitments to my employer.
  • I am loyal to people who have earned my loyalty.
  • I provide for my family.

I reflect on my decisions and actions to avoid:

  • negligence,
  • incompetence,
  • deception,
  • waste, and
  • harm.

Agile practice is a means to these ends.

About Ken Judy

I am an executive manager, software developer, father and husband trying to do more good than harm. I am an agile practitioner. I say this fully aware I say nothing. Sold as a tool to solve problems, agile is more a set of principles that encourage us to confront problems. Broad adoption of the jargon has not resulted in wide embrace of these principles. I strive to create material and human good by respecting co-workers, telling truth to employers, improving my skills, and caring for the people affected by the software I help build.
