    • 29. PRACTICES Day-to-day activities that carry out principles that reflect the values. E.g., We identify our work flow so that everyone knows their job and knows what to expect from everyone they interact with. We don’t let “small stuff” become “big stuff” and we communicate to each other what works and how we fix what doesn’t. And, our leaders let this happen because they know that this is what keeps us ahead of everyone else. 11-Nov-2011 29www.agiletour.org | (C)2010 Entinex, Inc.
