Hi list I just stumbled about this Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely. I guess I cannot hide from anybody where this comes from... But it really has a lot to do with Permaculture Design. Learning from iterations would just be the next value (if a derived one) of Agile that fits perfectly. The big difference being that PDesign not considering software but hardware it cannot afford the "make to throw it away" approach and have to study complex relations and behavior much more upfront, which might lead to a principle like e.g. At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly.  Amazing, is it not? And apologies for the slight OTness of this. Cheers Robert  http://agilemanifesto.org/principles.html -- Si tu veux construire un bateau ... Ne rassemble pas des hommes pour aller chercher du bois, préparer des outils, répartir les tâches, alléger le travail… mais enseigne aux gens la nostalgie de l’infini de la mer. If you want to build a ship, don’t herd people together to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.
