The Agile Manifesto

Before you start thinking about the Agile development
Take printout of following and pin in front of your desk. Read it again and again untill you are convinced with it (Bug me if you are not).
Manifesto for Agile Software Development
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

That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.
