What, then, is Agile?
Agile is not a development process.
Agile is not programming.
Agile is not a hard-and-fast Rule.
Agile does not tell you what to do.
Agile is not an Answer or a Solution.
So what, then, is Agile?
Agile is an approach to work – any kind of work.
Agile is an attitude.
Agile is a feeling.
Agile is a method to work together in a team:
- A way to keep everyone in sync.
- A way to bring out issues into the open, whenever they happen.
- A way to acknowledge when things aren’t going your way.
- A way to correct your direction when you stray – and a way to know when you stray.
- A way to redefine Collaboration.
Agile encourages you to explore and find your solutions – as a team.
Agile recommends transparency at all times, thus creating a bond between the team and the customer.
Agile makes you feel that everyone involved are in it together – for results that bring satisfaction to all.
Unless you experience it, you will not know it.
