A Dacade of the Agile Manifesto

Today marks 10 years of the Agile Manifesto.

I am so glad I met you.  You have transformed the way we work and go about product development.  You have made I.T. fun and put team back into teamwork.  Reflecting back, we have made a lot of progress in the past 10 years.  We started with Agile teams, but now we have progressed towards how we can create Agile organisations.

We still have a lot of challenges ahead and many people still misunderstand your values, but through collaboration we will continue to uncover better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it.

Happy Birthday.  I look forward to the next 10 years as we continuously improve the way we work.
