Over the past decade, innovative companies, software industry thought leaders and lean/agile pioneers have discovered simpler, sturdier, and more streamlined ways to be agile. While there is timeless wisdom in agile, today's practitioners would do well to bypass outmoded agile practices in favor of modern approaches.
Modern agile methods are defined by four guiding principles
Make people awesome
Make safety a prerequisite
Experience & learn rapidly
Deliver value continuously
World famous organizations like Google, Amazon, Air BnB, Etsy and others are living proof of the powers of these four principles. However, you don't need to be a name brand company to leverage modern agile wisdom.
In this Agile2016 Keynote, Josh Kerievsky explains what he means by modern agility, shares real-world modern agile stories, shows how modern agile addresses key risks while targeting results over rituals, and reveals how the 2001 agile manifesto can be updated to reflect modern agile's four guiding principles.
