Chapter 1 – Origins of the Agile Mindset
- Agile frameworks and techniques may seem like a fad to some people; however, they have their origins in leadership and management practices and systems thinking, which are not new and which will be familiar to many coaches.
- To work with your coachees to change behaviour, we need to understand the theoretical and practical origins of the Agile frameworks our clients choose to use.
- By appreciating that what has come before Agile frameworks were defined by software developers, we tie organizations’ desire to gain the benefits of using Agile frameworks to a much wider body of knowledge in order to help us in tricky moments.
