How Agile Allows for Continuous Improvements
The Final Principle of the Agile Manifesto:
“At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly.”
How does this translate to agile’s users?
It’s an impetus to continually learn and adapt, really. At the core of this principle is a desire to improve agile teams. To accomplish this, development must be sustainable both in pace and scope.
Here are some pointers to aid in learning while being agile:
- Do not blame, but examine, others.
- Concentrate on what is within your control, rather than what isn’t.
- Find actionable tasks.
- Prioritize and ultimately choose which tasks to proceed with.
Another key component of continually learning is being able to act on what is learned. Without this, productivity will remain stagnant, and new skills will not be cemented. Part of the reason why learning is important in agile is because software development is an-ever expanding field. Those within the industry must adapt and grow with it in order to thrive.
