What is Agile?

Agile is a way of working focused on impact enabled by collaboration and supported by empirical continuous improvement (i.e. the art and science of making reality painfully obvious, so that we can all make better decisions).

Why should I care?

Agile can help you solve complex problems, when more is unknown than known and things keep changing.

How can I use Agile?

  1. Decide what you want.
  2. Deliver a small subset of what you want quickly.
  3. Work closely with teammates, customers and other people.
  4. Learn from the experience.
  5. Repeat.

This HOWTO is based on the experiences of countless people who use Agile every day. It is a work in progress and will be updated and refined based on your feedback.
