I’ve gotten a little flack for it. A handful of people informed me that there is only one definition of Agile and it’s in the values and principles expressed in the Agile Manifesto. The implication was that if my definition is different from the Manifesto, it must be wrong.
At Gary Brown’s urging, I reread the principles in the Manifesto. And I discovered that my “definition” is indeed in there. It’s in the principles: “…continuous delivery of valuable software…changing requirements…sustainable development…maintain a constant pace indefinitely.”
