What is Agile?August 3, 2014 at 10:27 am | Posted in Best fit Agile, Blogroll, Scrum and agile, Software Engineering | Leave a comment
There is a misconception that agile is just about processes, and primarily for software development. This is a narrow view and as long as we see it that way, we deprive ourselves of the real benefits of Agile.
Agile is much more than that. It is an approach and a way of working (Agile Method). It is a way of thinking and a state of mind (Agile Mind). In short,
Agile = Agile Method + Agile Mind
Even in software development, it is not limited to a few processes but can be applied to all processes. In fact once the Agile is used fully for software development, it will start being used in all our walks of life. After all, it is one life and can’t be compartmentalized.
In next few weeks, let us explore this line of thought in detail.
