Agile appeals to me because it’s rational, and because I evolved to it based on my own experience. But its real attraction is on the human side; it creates a team-based, collaborative, consensus culture, and it promotes the values that I admire. Honesty, openness, intrinsic motivation, robust collaboration, reflection, and improvement; these values seem so obvious from a human perspective, and yet the enterprises we build are often the exact opposite. Siloed, politically charged, hierarchical, and demotivating cultures are still the norm in many enterprises. Agile values of teamwork, incremental refinement, and change readiness are inevitable in our tumultuous business environment. Once executives, their teams, and their customers absorb these ideas, agile will change everything.
