THE BALANCED TEAM MOVEMENT
Lane Halley
#LeanUX14
@thinknow
GOT IDEAS?
@thinknow
“...this year’s conference doesn’t just
focus on Lean Startup or some other
method or ideology...how can people
best work together, learn from each
other, and develop a sense of empathy
so that we can be more resilient and
better adapt to these uncertain times?”
@semanticwill
@thinknow
How do we make
these ideas real?

The Agile Manifesto
emerged from a salon
@thinknow
Manifesto for Agile Software Development
We are uncovering better ways of developing
software by doing it and helping others do it.
Through this work we have come to value:
Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
Working software over comprehensive documentation
Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
Responding to change over following a plan
That is, while there is value in the items on
the right, we value the items on the left more.
