Understanding the agile mindset

491 views

Published on

Agile is not a methodology it is just a list of values and practices, described in Agile Manifesto.

You may easily find a list of Agile Frameworks such as Scrum, XP, Crystal Clear and others.
It may sounds strange, but they still are not a methodology.
Methodology is their implementation, which works for context it was created.

Unfortunately, Agile implementations sometimes have a blind spot.
You may easily start using Agile practices but without accompaniment mindset they most likely not work.

And what does "Agile mindset" actually mean?
