Returning to the Heart of Agile – Alistair Cockburn

“Agile has become overly decorated. Let’s scrape away those decorations for a minute, and get back to the center of agile.”

The Heart of Agile is a fresh look at Agile that strips away a lot of the cruft that has built up over recent years. Collaborate, Deliver, Reflect, Improve. This talk goes over the addition of kokoro onto the shu-ha-ri sequence, and it’s implications for agile. A fun, light talk with heavy implications.

Following the heart of agile talk, Alistair answered questions from the audience using the unusual form of answering with stories. They are more fun to listen to, and often more illuminating.
