Recently I read an article on Agile with title – Agile Methods don’t exist. What does, then? by Jan Ambrozlewlcz
I think its fair to say – Agile is all about Mindset. It is not a discipline but a practice which allow to adopt changes quickly and efficiently whenever changes are essential to the end goal. Although it is not so easy for any organization or team or division to come with one voice over end games, each individual has their own perception and understanding of what actually need to achieve and not everyone can pursue it correctly. I think that’s where the problem underlies. Agile can be easily apply on games where we do not regret over the mistakes done, it’s already done, move on. Make a strategy is a key to win the game, and agility is a key to adopt the strategy quickly.
But quick does not mean accurate or perfect or 100% done. It means when direction has changed it has adopt it and change it course (whether it is a team, project or company). And swift focus on the sort term changes (which I see as challenges). It’s risky to say it but I think if decision taken as a team and each member has visualize the strategy thoroughly and involved themself in it then nothing is impossible to achieve in ever changing environment (i.e. agile). All we need is a courage and voice to phrase.
