Software Engineering, Project Management, and Effectiveness
You might already know the Agile Manifesto:
But do you know the Declaration of Interdependence:
While the Agile Manifesto is geared toward Agile practitioners, the Declaration of Interdependence is geared towards Agile project leaders.
When you know the values that shape things, it helps you better understand why things are the way they are.
Notice how you can read the Agile Manifesto as, “we value this more than that” and you can read the Declaration of Interdependence as “this benefit we achieve through this.” Those are actually powerful and repeatable language patterns. I’ve found myself drawing from those patterns over the years, whenever I was trying to articulate operating principles (which is a good name for principles that guide how you operate.)

Great post, JD. Thanks for sharing! I appreciate both points... Learning about the Declaration of Interdependence. And I agree with you on the power of those language patterns. I use the over one a lot when chartering, especially a team's values. I look forward to trying the we do this through this pattern.
