The Agile Manifesto was written in 2001 with 12 underlying principles that changed the pace and face of software development and testing as we know it today. The Manifesto or core philosophy states that:

“We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value:

Individuals and interactions over processes and tools

Working software over comprehensive documentation

Customer collaboration over contract negotiation

Responding to change over following a plan

That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.”

Since then the software quality practice has undergone several shifts and aligned itself with the iterative methodology, by implementing processes like shift left, continuous testing and collaborative testing.
