This week I was in a conversation with a respected leader in the agile community, and part of our conversation was on the word “over” in the manifesto
Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
Working software over comprehensive documentation
Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
Responding to change over following a plan
There were some others contributing to the conversation (@Dana_Pylayeva) , and I was amazed at how much we spoke about a four-letter word. I wanted to extend that conversation here and see what the thought are in the meaning and intent of “over” here.
