GeneralBackground: Creation of Agile Manifesto Pin

Reading this short section of how the Agile process arose is interesting to see what was really behind the idea. From (Unlocking Agility: An Insider's Guide to Agile Enterprise Transformation (Addison-Wesley Signature Series (Cohn)): Jorgen Hesselberg: 9780134542843: Amazon.com: Books[^])
This book provides an amazing history of software development and how we’ve gotten to where we are. Definitely worth the read.
Quote:
Yet in writing the Manifesto, these software professionals realized that they had created something deeper and more profound.
Jim Highsmith, one of the signatories, noted:

“I believe Agile Methodologists are really about “mushy” stuff about delivering good products to customers by operating in an environment that does more than talk about “people as our most important asset” but actually “acts” as if people were the most important, and lose the word “asset.”20

James Grenning, another signatory of the Manifesto, agrees. “The Manifesto was written in a time when Process was clearly valued more than People. Since the signatories were people who were writing code every day, we could see the harm that this thinking did to our work and to the products we created. More than anything else, the Agile Manifesto is about making the world safe for programmers.”21
The signatories were primarily interested in finding ways to create environments for writing better software while the profession found itself in a crisis.
