The Agile Manifesto is a business management manifesto developed by the software development company, Scrum. It was created in 2001 to provide a set of principles for software development that would help in building better products and services. The manifesto has been widely hailed as a way to break down silos and create more efficient workflows between different departments of an organization. The manifesto has been compared to the Lean Startup movement. They both emphasize on keeping things simple and iterating quickly rather than spending too much time on planning and designing before getting started.
