Principles behind the Lazy Manifesto

We try to follow these principles:

We work hard only to make our work easier and safer.

Doing nothing is always an option.

We seek to minimize the number of backlog items
while keeping the value of the whole backlog.

We believe keeping velocity increasing is not always good.

We eliminate tasks that generate no value.

We combine tasks to reduce latency and rework.

We rearrange tasks to find problems early.

We simplify all tasks as much as possible.

We are not afraid of eliminating our own tasks / processes
by continuously finding lazier ways.

We focus on expanding our capabilities
not on increasing our capacities

We always look to get help from others
while we provide help to others with minimum effort.

We never try to add an unnecessary principle simply
to match the number of principles
with the other manifesto :)
