About Agile-Minds

About Agile-Minds – www.agile-minds.com

Agile-Minds is my site about experiences I made with agile product & software development. It talks about the gains and challenges of agile methods like SCRUM, KANBAN and the LEAN principles, discusses challenges from the domain of product development and solutions that worked for me. The site is public – but its main purpose is to be a notebook for myself where I pencil down insights and learnings for further usage.

The site contains information about agility and how it impacts your daily business life. Agile software development practices changed the way we built software. Agile product development ensures continuous availability of changes for our customers. LEAN principles helped us to put the software and product development methods together and showed us a way to control our business with agile methods working under the hood. LEAN methods came with “avoid waste”, “validated learning” and the “build-measure-learn” cycle defined by Eric Ries in “The LEAN Startup | Methodology”.

Agility can go even further. If the organization allows to revert the PUSH-principle into a PULL-principle – it empowers people to change a whole business organization. The fundament for an organizational transformation.

It’s tempting to repeat myself and introduce myself once again – but then I need to update yet another place.
