What does the future hold for Agile?
As different industries begin to embrace Agile and teams become more distributed, it is clear that Agile (and the way we use it) is going to change. The key to adapting is to see the change coming and to act on it immediately – only then can Agile companies truly thrive in a business world that offers no guarantees and demands flexibility. Whether you’re a Scrum Master, CEO, VP or an Agile Coach, everyone wants the same thing: an effective team working towards a common goal in an efficient and harmonious way. Quite often this can be easier said than done, and those implementing and practising Agile must be ready to face the challenges that they will inevitably encounter.

‘Agile state of mind – how to be antifragile in a world of continuous change’
The increased pace at which technology and science are evolving in such an interdisciplinary fashion makes future prediction more and more difficult. Embracing an agile and experimental approach to business growth and innovation is the only way to stay ahead and lead the way. A lean approach to business and product development supports a real growth mindset in people and a continuous learning approach within organizations helping them to be antifragile and disruptive. This process educates and empowers creativity, lateral thinking and co-creation as well as helping validate ideas in a quick feedback loop. Value and knowledge creation is produced thanks to continuous communication and exchange between parties to promote a smarter human-machine growth.
