Explaining Agile

I came across an excellent blog on Forbes the other day by Steve Denning, in which he describes Agile and tries to help people navigate the complicated Agile landscape we find ourselves in. He quotes Craig Smith’s excellent ‘40 Agile Methods in 40 Minutes‘ that, when coupled with the 70 agile practices (some are on the Agile Alliance subway map) can make it very hard for people to decide how to ‘Be Agile’.

Steve  cuts through the detail beautifully, and distills out 3 laws of agile (small team, customers, networks) and reinforces that this requires fundamentally different management.

It is well worth a read, and you can find it here: https://www.forbes.com/sites/stevedenning/2016/09/08/explaining-agile/#596308a5301b
