Agile Software Development evolved as a reaction to rigid software development
models such as the Waterfall Model. Agile methods include Scrum and Extreme
Programming (XP). The Agile Manifesto (See: http://agilemanifesto.org/) states:
“We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping
others do it. Through this work we have come to value:
• Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
• Working software over comprehensive documentation
• Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
• Responding to change over following a plan”7
Agile embodies many modern development concepts, including more flexibility,
fast turnaround with smaller milestones, strong communication within the team,
and more customer involvement.

    Fun concept 5 years ago when it was a programmer/startup thing, meanwhile, PMs came and fucked it up. For instance, here’s the story of another Scrum survivor: http://www.writemoretests.com/2011/09/agile-scrum-delivering-broken-software.html
