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.
