WHY HEART OF AGILE
I may have been a late bloomer when I first heard of this thing called Agile in 2007. But it resonated with me deeply as I recognised that at its core was the recipe for how to do less stupid things today than I had done yesterday. The principles, practices and tools that have developed around “the Heart of Agile” have stood me in good stead in every situation professionally and personally. I am grateful to Alistair for his friendship, intellect and his ability to see through all the noise and find the central fabric of what makes teams successful.
