Managing a project is the same as managing one’s mind.

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
Dr. Seuss

Agile design is built on four values:

  1. Meeting individual needs over following protocol.

  2. Building things that function over creating sets of rules for how to make things work.

  3. Collaboration over negotiation.

  4. Responding to need over following a plan.

There are some fundamental changes in perspective that underlie the Agile method that directly apply to relationships, and which would immediately improve them. For example, if groups—couples, families, or communities—adopted these precepts, things would be different.
