What we believe

Agile makes innovation predictable

While innovation happens in a very non-linear way, it doesn't have to be a black box. Gather insights consequently, ideate and test systematically for predictable outcomes.

Innovation starts with people, not technology

Delivering the thing right means nothing without delivering the right thing. Starting from the needs of customers and not from technology is the core principle of human-centered design.

Agility is more about culture than ceremonies

Establishing an Agile culture, mindset and attitude of teams is much  more important than enforcing the Scrum practices. 

Money & magic need to happen together

Innovation is successful only when you solve a customer need while keeping in mind the business goals.

Enterprise agility works in a package 

You need the right tribe structures, enterprise agile governance, cross-functional teams, culture of collaboration and empowerment, and technology to make enterprise agile work.

We support the Agnostic Agile Oath

AABadgeSolo.png

As experienced agile practitioners and as people responsible for agile change and transformation, we should recognise the importance of being agnostic with agility at any level. This means one size does not fit all, one framework is not the answer, and the ‘what’ and ‘how’ should be suited to customer context and to a wider strategic vision.
