Heart of Agile Icon


Heart of Agile crystalizes the fundamentals of Agile. No enterprise can build anything serious or have results and ROI in Agile without the right Agile foundations and values, that are synthetized in Heart of Agile by Alistair Cockburn. In addition to that, Alistair really incarnates the human values of Agility: people first! As a methodologist for 25 years, I recognize myself very well in Alistair Cockburn’s HOA approach. For many, if you are Agile you need to “fail fast”, as well you cannot establish a mid-long term roadmap! Idiots! Agile is rather learn fast. As HOA Agile Coaches, our duty is rather to help enterprises succeed directly, avoiding failures by learning fast. In the same way, Agile allows to establish a roadmap. It will be more accurate and more flexible, that is all!
