Agile is when you …
- Deliver value the best you can at every moment
… not regretting what you promised and froze when you wrote the requirements and thought you had it all thought out
- Adapt to your challenges, your opportunities and the work you have to do
… not fitting to some stage gate model
- Accept that there are things that you don’t know
… not assuming you know it all and that you have it nailed in the plan
Was that too long?
Should there be a 4th it would be …
- Allow everyone the freedom and opportunity to contribute
… not do micro-management and force detailed instructions
Twitter style that becomes: Delivering the best you can, adapt to what you do, allow to contribute and accept that you don’t know you don’t know …that’s #Agile
Reflections from a short conversation with a friend this afternoon.
