Description

Last Update: 24th May, 2020

Every Company is looking to be adaptive. What is holding them back, and what do they need to do?

Agile is first and foremost a mindset. An agilist does not want to waste anything; neither time nor money. We have replaced scope with value as our main driver. This might not always be easy, but it has become our mantra. We do this by performing continuous validation to check if we are holding to the promise. If not, then it's time to change the plan.

Why does this matter?

  • Planning for things that will never happen is a waste

  • Instead of concentrating on what we don't know, how about starting with what we know and get our hands dirty. This is the real way to learn and make progress

  • When you think about it, don't you want to make sure your efforts are worthwhile; they are appreciated and are something that people want. There's a word for this, and it's called value.

  • It's about having the right attitude, understanding what is important and staying relentless in achieving this


Who should be interested?

Anyone who is looking for a more effective way to run an adaptive organization, regardless of whatever system your company has deployed.
