Agile Practices vs. Principles

Is agile a set of practices or is it a philosophy? If my company has adopted the practices, is our transformation complete? This round table discussion will explore what it really means to be agile. And the answers may surprise you!

Never been to a IIBA/COHAA LIG? LIGs are a unique event where a facilitator presents a 5-10 minute primer on a topic, and then we open up for discussion. Everyone is encouraged (sometimes required) to add to the conversation through either questions or their experiences and knowledge. We limit attendance to 20 people to enable an open discussion, so sign up early.

    Excellent! Engaging! Educational! Every aspect and angle was explored and evaluated by a collective group of experienced enthusiasts... and "organizational therapists"!

    " ...<principles> alone isn’t enough. Unless it produces <practices>, it is dead and useless. Now someone may argue, “Some people have <principles>; others have <practices>.” But I say, “How can you show me your <principles> if you don’t have <practices>? I will show you my <principles> by my <practices>.” " Principles:Practices=Belief:Behavior=Faith:Deeds.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
