- "individuals over processes ",
- "face-to-face" conversation instead of quality system transactions,
- "self-organizing teams ".
To enact the Manifesto, a few enterprises have emerged to develop pioneering instruments : management frameworks, methods, design canvas, coaching tools (marketed as " Agile games ").
Today, these instruments are the foundation of franchise type businesses.
In France, early this year, a study on 26 French public operators and administrations found that the level of adoption of Agile instruments greatly varies.
For instance, The Scrum Guide, a framework co-published by Scrum.Org and ScrumInc, USA, was found popular and often stood for Agile method. Contrariwise the Delegation Poker, an Agile game edited by Happy Melly One, The Netherlands, was found to have little exposure as it is encapsulated into a set of management practices called "Management 3.0".
These Agile instruments, -written documents, stylish graphics, table games, software modules –, bear intellectual property rights (IPR) that challenge legacy IT sourcing practices.
The study discusses a five levels maturity model for Agile instruments sourcing.
