The Heart Of Agile

For some time now Alistair Cockburn has been on  the journey to bring back the simplicity of Agile. I can remember discussing with him many times how it had become so convoluted with frameworks and multiple methods, all of them claiming to be the golden cure to creating agility. Yet the more involved they became, the harder the path to agility was to navigate.

I was finding increasingly, that every time I was 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.

So when Alistair crystallised this into the simplicity that is the Heart of Agile using those four words, Collaborate, Deliver, Reflect, Improve, it gave me voice and premise to have conversations with organisations, leaders and teams in a clear and simple way that is easily grasped and can be implemented immediately.

Following on from this, a couple of months ago,  Alistair quietly launched the https://heartofagile.com/ site as a hub for all things Heart of Agile . Along with this, myself and eight other amazingly talented people across the world  were also selected to help listen and guide those who wish to start the Heart of Agile journey.

I am deeply honoured to be part of this group of people who have such deep expertise and a willingness to  share their experiences. If any if this resonates with you and you want to get back to the Heart of Agile, then wherever you are in the world don’t hesitate to reach out to the guides.
