Topics

There’s a great deal of information out there about Agile that covers a wide range of topics.  To help you find the information you’re looking for, we’ve grouped our content into a set of categories. Read more about each of them below and find out what content we have in each:

Business

In addition to building the thing right, you want to make sure you’re building the right thing and setting your organization up to focus on the right thing across the entire enterprise. Our business-focused resources contain content related to customers, product management, product ownership, analysis, user experience, and business agility.

Framework

There are many different ways to introduce Agile into your organization via by a variety of frameworks. Our framework resources explore the different Agile frameworks including Scrum, Extreme Programming, Kanban, SAFe, DAD, LeSS, and several others.

Mindset

The one consistent thing across different Agile frameworks and techniques is they all share a common mindset. Our mindset resources provide different ways of looking at Agile values and principles and their impact on your organization’s culture.

People

A hallmark of Agile is its care for and focus on the people who do the work and a concern for how they work together. Our people resources explore leadership, coaching, mentoring, learning, collaboration, and teams.

Process

Agile is a mindset, but anytime you get groups of people working together you eventually need some form of process. Our process resources explore process-related concepts such as scaling Agile, enterprise Agile, government, project management, program management, portfolio management, adoption, and Agile transformation.

Technology

At its core, Agile software development is still about developing software, which is just as much about technical practices as it is about people. Our technology resources explore development practices, craft, testing, and DevOps.

Community

Agile Alliance exists to support and grow the Agile community. Our community resources cover news and events taking place in that space.

The Alliance

We prefer to keep the focus on you, but occasionally we like to let you know what we’re up to.  Our alliance resources feature events organized by Agile Alliance, Agile Alliance initiatives, and information about the Agile Alliance website.
