Over the past decade, innovative companies, software industry thought leaders, and lean/agile pioneers have discovered simpler, sturdier, more streamlined ways to be agile. These modern approaches share a focus on producing exceptional outcomes and growing an outstanding culture.

One such approach is Modern Agile.

Modern agile methods are defined by four guiding principles:
- Make People Awesome
- Make Safety a Prerequisite
- Deliver Value Continuously
- Experiment and Learn Rapidly

To experienced agile practitioners, three of these will look profoundly familiar. We will try exploring further the fourth, probably less known - certainly more controversial! - principle: Make Safety a Prerequisite.

Manuel Gomes is a Modern Agile practitioner with many years of experience helping companies in Brisbane, Lisbon and Amsterdam achieve their full potential.
