Heart of Agile Icon


Agile has become so convoluted with scaling frameworks and multiple methodologies, all of them claiming to be the golden cure to creating agility. I find increasingly that every time I am asked to help somewhere that had a failed or less than optimal Agile implementation, it was because they had ignored the basics. A return to these made immediate and lasting impact every time. When Alistair crystallised this into the simplicity that is the Heart of Agile using those four words, Collaborate, Deliver, Reflect, Improve, it gave voice and premise to have conversations with organisations, leaders and teams in a clear and simple way that is easily grasped and implemented immediately.
