Apple could learn from a little agile thinking | Agile is eating the world | Scoop.it

"Taking an agile approach to branding is rooted in listening to your consumers, bringing products to market quickly and then being prepared to make incremental improvements based on accurate and reliable feedback. It works best when it is part of an open and collaborative innovation process, where information is shared and discussed. Instead of celebrating their own heroism, agile brands are humble and understand that they only exist because consumers want to buy their products."

In Big Companies, Lean Is Only One Piece of the Puzzle

In Big Companies, Lean Is Only One Piece of the Puzzle | Agile is eating the world | Scoop.it

So many would-be corporate innovators find themselves lacking the mandate, the capital, and the organizational structure to run iterative tests to validate their ideas in an uncertain world — the very core of "lean". This, in turn, derails them in one of two ways: they have to commit wholeheartedly to "fat" innovation — promising their senior executives a pathway forward and a certain amount of revenue, before they have tested their hypotheses, in exchange for funding. Alternatively, they attempt to innovate in a lean fashion, but they are slowed immensely by numerous requests for budget, little tolerance for failure, and a general disregard for "experimentation."

From the Agile Manifesto to Evolutionary Contract Models | Javalobby | Agile is eating the world | Scoop.it

In many ways Gandhi was a hardline ascetic, and an exemplar of the sort of intellectual who can live without written contractual guarantees from others. Yet he was also a canny lawyer, and in retrospect we can see he was right to assert that constant development is the law of life. It can be argued that the agile revolution has been founded upon this very principle.

Hoang-Anh Phan's insight:

"In Agile, the focus is on the correct solution, not on meeting a deadline. Agile depends on the team, and on every individual in the team managing themselves maturely. To the traditional business, and traditional managers, this is frightening. In many cases, it's simply too much to ask."

The Mediterranean Diet as a lifestyle…just like agile?

The Mediterranean Diet as a lifestyle…just like agile? | Agile is eating the world | Scoop.it

“I thought this was about agile?” I hear you saying to yourself. What, it is, in that it has made me resurrect some work I did a number of years ago around the entire infrastructure of agile, not as a series of events, techniques and tools, but rather as a “lifestyle”, a comprehensive set of tools, beliefs, practices, and attitudes in how the organization completes it work.

Hoang-Anh Phan's insight:

I also think of and witness agility in a lot of situations. Agile is a way to "uncover new ways" that originally resonated in tech people and now is spreading at the same time as technology is becoming more important.
