What we're about

Since the creation of the ‘Manifesto for Agile Software Development’ in 2001, many believe agile practices have become decorated to the point where it contradicts its roots. This is why, in 2015, Dr Alistair Cockburn (Manifesto co-author) developed ‘Heart of Agile’ to bring people back to what it’s about.

“We recover the simplicity and power of agile by recognizing that it can be expressed in four words: Collaborate; Deliver; Reflect; Improve.” - Alistair Cockburn

Through the Heart of Agile Scotland meetup group, our hope is to build a space where people of all abilities can exchange, build, and grow ideas, whilst making lasting, meaningful connections. This is not limited to those in the software development space - if you have an interest in agile, or have something to share, please feel free to come along.

Our meetups will generally be themed around one of the four key imperivites (Collaborate, Deliver, Reflect, Improve) and will be held on the first Thursday, every other month.

Hello Fabulous Community, It’s been a while but we’ve been busy beavering away in the background reflecting on your feedback to line up a interactive, engaging, and fun session that’ll delight us all. Coming up on 03/09/20 at 19:00 we have a superb online session planned where our very own Alistair Cockburn and the awesome Sole Pinter will take us on an interactive journey exploring learning to see decisions as well as a discussion facilitated around cultural enablers and impediments to agile behaviour. This session will fill up fast and we will be limited by the numbers so reserve your spot ASAP and make sure your friends know all about it in time!
