Balance: The Secret of Agile

Some who hear about Agile’s thoughts about self-managing teams often make the mistake to think that there is no discipline or structure in the several Agile Methods and frameworks such as Scrum and Kanban, but nothing could be further from the truth.

Agility lies at the crossroads of both freedom and discipline. The careful applying of both forces simultaneusly brings effectiveness, optimism, solidariy and a sense of humor to companies and teams everywhere.

Agile is neither the anarchy of the workers, nor the dictatorship of management, but rather the careful balance of both to establish the Republic of Good Will towards all. This balance is the secret of true agility, it enables everyone to work together, and enjoy their journey!
