Agile-thougths July edition: Waves of Agile

Agile-thoughts is a free online magazine that aims to disclose experiences and enable meaning-full connections. The editors collect treasures from bold agile thinkers and share them with their readers.

Yesterday the July issue of Agile-thoughts has been released. Since the release date coincides with the launch of my new book, the editor has picked a very special theme for the magazine: WAVES.

In the editorial a nice point is made. The special thing about the covid situation is that we were all going through the same phases. This enabled us to adapt quickly. I like the connection made to the waves of agile. As stated: “Understanding the nature of those waves and recognizing the way they materialize along the Agile journey becomes priceless: first, it provides clarity of what to expect through the transformation, and second, it helps grasp a better sense of what is happening in the organization.” In short if we understand the phase we are in, this will speed up the transformation.

Beside referring to the book, other authors allign with the theme as well. See for instance the article by Mattia Rapisarda: Waves, Surfing and Agile, which shares a experience story of Agile Transformation in a Italian Finance Organization.

Check out the magazine and the other articles by Jerilyn Edginton, Aino Vonge Corry, Sonja Blignaut, Fernando Cuenca and Monica Viggars

Great job!
