How old is Agile?

When was Agile invented? In other words, how old is it? When was the first time Agile was implemented successfully on a real project for a real company. Does anyone have this information, or can anyone lead to a resource answering my question?

Agile, as a concept, is old, it is very old. In my research trying to answer your question, I saw a quote from 1977 defining Agile, although not calling it by its current name.

However, I don't think we can say that Agile is 34 years old. Agile, in my opinion, has the same age of the Agile manifesto.

But when was the Agile manifesto published? It was published in early (February, some say) 2001, which means that Agile is slightly over 10 years old!
