Published on

Agile is about mindset, this mindset is established through 4 values, grounded by 12 principles, and manifested through many different practices. Agile is a transformation from “fixed mindset” to “growth mindset”. Agile is a shift of thinking for the way of how we run a knowledge work from “defined process” to “empirical process”, Agile is a paradigm shift of how we manage work (specially knowledge work) from “coordination & control” to “inspect & adapt”. So, Agile is all about mindset, and it’s very important to understand this mindset in order to succeed the transformation to Agility that allows us to deal with complexity and uncertainty by established set of attitudes and habits toward a work like: failing early, learning through discovery, welcoming change, continuous delivery and continuous improvement, self-organizing team, collaboration and communication, build in feedback loops...etc, and when we really understand the Agile mindset we can use the Agile practices and tools as “Shu” level of instructions and guidance in the journey from “Doing Agile” to “Being Agile”, this journey that requires a lot of education and learning.

Through this work we have come to #value: That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.
  22. 22. ❏ The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation. ❏ Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely. ❏ Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility. ❏ Simplicity -the art of maximizing the amount of work not done- is essential. ❏ The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams. ❏ At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly. ❏ Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software. ❏ Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer's competitive advantage. ❏ Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale. ❏ Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project. ❏ Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done. ❏ Working software is the primary measure of progress. 12 Principles of Agile Manifesto:
