  5. Working software is the primary measure of progress.
  6. Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.
  7. Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility.
  8. Simplicity–the art of maximizing the amount of work not done–is essential.
  9. The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams.
