Agile has become overly decorated. Let’s scrape away those decorations for a minute, and get back to the heart of agile.
The Heart of Agile simplifies two decades of practice into four critical imperatives that amplify your effectiveness:
closely with others to generate and develop better starting ideas. Communicate often to smooth transitions.
small probes initially to learn how the world really works. Expand deliveries as you learn to predict and influence outcomes.
periodically, along the way. Think about what you've learned in your collaboration and from your deliveries.
the direction of your ideas, their technical implementation, and your internal processes.
The four words help us to focus our energies on critical actions. At the same time, this simplification opens the door to many new and interesting ways of implementing each one of them.
