  17. 17. An Agile Manifesto for Organisations (courtesy Bruce Caron) We value: • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools • Working volunteers over comprehensive documentation • Member collaboration over contract negotiation • Responding to change over following a plan.
  18. 18. Going forward… • Register you data — give it a PID and some metadata. • Drink the community champagne! (Adopt a deliverable.) • Seek connection and collaboration, but do not fear difference. Therein lies insight. • Continue to build a culture of trust and sharing. • Contribute to a strategic direction around communication, coordination, and engagement.
