Agile Values

Key Behaviour. Primary Factor.


Agile values takes organisations beyond the symbols of agility and changes their mindset to create improvements in speed to market, reduced costs, and ability to rapidly pivot to change.

Modern agile values are derived from the Agile Manifesto and its 12 principles. It makes statements of philosophical preference that promote:

  • Fast feedback loops from stakeholders.
  • Making decisions on an increment of value over a plan or documentation about future plans.
  • Working together in teams and with stakeholders.
  • Recognising that plans need to change when what is known to be of value changes, and making the pivot to change as quick and painless as possible.
