I was in Trondheim for the XP2010 conference (btw I had a good and educational time, I'll write more details later) and afterwards we visited Oslo with my wife and daughter. I found this extremely neat postcard. It says:
§1 Be brave and aggressive.
Grab all opportunities.
Use varying methods of attack.
Be versatile and agile.
Attack one target at a time.
Don't plan everything in detail.
Use top quality weapons.
§2 Be prepared.
Keep weapons in good condition.
Keep in shape.
Find good battle comrades.
Agree on important points.
Choose one chief.
§3 Be a good merchant.
Find out what the market needs.
Don't promises what you can't keep.
Don't demand overpayment.
Arrange things so that you can return.
§4 Keep the camp in order.
Keep things tidy and organized.
Arrange enjoyable activities which strengthen the group.
Make sure everybody does useful work.
Consult all members of the group for advice.
In the future I wont refer anymore to the Agile Manifesto, the Viking Laws will be the thing ;)
