Modern Agile [#ModernAgile]

Modern Agile methods are defined by 4 guiding principles:

1. Make People Awesome
2. Make Safety a Prerequisite
3. Experiment & Learn Rapidly
4. Deliver Value Continuously

1. Make People Awesome
In Modern Agile we ask how we can make people in our ecosystem awesome.

This includes the people who use, make, buy, sell or fund our products or services.

We learn their context and pain points, what holds them back and what they aspire to achieve.

How can we make them awesome?

2. Make Safety a Prerequisite
Safety is both a basic human need and a key to unlocking high performance.

We actively make safety a prerequisite by establishing safety before engaging in any hazardous work.

We protect people’s time, information, reputation, money, health and relationships.

And we endeavor to make our collaborations, products and services resilient and safe.

3. Experiment & Learn Rapidly
You cannot make people awesome or make safety a prerequisite if you are not learning.

We learn rapidly by experimenting frequently.

We make our experiments “safe to fail” so we are not afraid to conduct more experiments.

When we get stuck or are not learning enough, we take it as a sign that we need to learn more by running more experiments.

4. Deliver Value Continuously
Anything that is not delivered is not helping anyone become more awesome or safe.

In Modern Agile we ask ourselves, “How could valuable work be delivered faster?”

Delivering value continuously requires us to divide larger amounts of value into smaller pieces that may be delivered safely now rather than later.
