Manifesto for Fragile Software Development

Some of my scrum team members came up with nice anti-agile manifesto that I at least found really hilarious. Especially as it highlights some of the things that are present in process-oriented organizations.

Manifesto for Fragile Software Development

We are uncovering worse ways of developing
software by writing about it and telling others about it.
Through this work we have come to value:

Messed-up processes and enterprise tools over people
Unfrozen and unfinished specs over working software
Hopelessness over happiness
Following an undetermined plan over responding to change

That is, while there is no value in the items on
the right, we only value the items on the left.

TODO: we need some signatures

So how about writing some fragile principles?

Was this by any chance inspired by these http://bit.ly/cWrZ7l? The Fragile methodology of Worry Driven Design has some very good patterns defined.
