Brian Marick: Agile Methods, the Emersonian Worldview, and the Dance of Agency

Brian Marick: “I was fortunate to be at the Snowbird workshop that led to the Manifesto for Agile Software Development. That manifesto has two parts: a statement of values and a statement of principles. The statement of values came easily. The statement of principles was a struggle. It was hard to reach consensus on some of them. One difficult principle was this one: The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams. The words “emerge” and “self-organizing” evoke the literature of Complex Adaptive Systems and Complexity Science.” (Via Brian Marick.)
