Using Tai-chi to deal with agility

At HolidayCheck we are working in a very fast and challenging environment on a daily base. Applying agile methods to improve our products and the solutions for our customers sounds logical. However it isn't a linear path and therefore we need to learn to deal with the various moves. The moves are similar like the once from a pendular. The softness of the tai-ch moves and forms is a great way to deal with these motions that you might not be able to control as an agile coach at all times.
