Agility In All Things

Scrum provides a minimal framework that enables agility, and at the same time provides a pathway to understand agility and how to make teams better. While Teams evolve and mature; they often strive to reach “agility in all things”.  So what does it mean to really be “agile”? How many ways can one be agile? Join us as we count a few of the ways!



Agility  –  The act of basing actions on current reality, as opposed to being predictive or plan-driven. Agility has two primary facets: Physical Agility and Mental Agility.

Mental Agility

Mental Agility  –  Having situational awareness and using feedback to make the decisions necessary to be agile.



Physical Agility

Physical Agility  –  A Team, Project, or Organization has Physical Agility if its processes provide the feedback necessary to enable ability.

Tactical Agility

Tactical Agility  –  Agility that changes ‘how’ a Team works in order to achieve its goals; this is embodied in the Team’s Self-Organization.



Strategic Agility

Strategic Agility  –  Agility that changes ‘what’ the Team or Organization does in order to maximize Value or ROI. Strategic Agility is a Product Ownership responsibility.

As Always, Stay Agile.
