Agile Alliance Presents
Reimagining Agile

Refreshing, extending, and making Agility accessible to all

Reimagine Agile is an initiative to promote Agile and Agility by re-examining and clarifying the core values and principles of Agile and extending those values and principles into new communities such as product management, non-IT organizational units, and overall enterprise agility.

What is the scope of the initiative?

  • To remind us about the historical intent of the Agile movement (partly so that newcomers might better understand).
  • To accelerate the future of agility enterprise-wide by solidifying the foundation of Agile values and principles.
  • To hear from organizations that have been successful at allowing agility to flourish so that we may learn how and what helps make that happen.
  • There is no intent by this launch group to publish a document or update the Agile Manifesto—the Agile community has grown too large for a single document to be effective.
  • Results or outcomes depend on the context in which they were created.
  • The initiative is intended to evolve in an “Agile” way – A decentralized network, self-organizing, organic, not top to bottom but horizontally from node to node.
  • All individuals, organizations, and associations are welcome. We hope each will honor a spirit of collaboration and acceptance of different views.
  • We welcome discussion, points of view, constructive criticism, opinions, differences of opinion, and collaborative and respectful debate.

“Agile is not a one-size-fits-all solution but a mindset that encourages adapting and evolving. It invites us to embrace change, question our assumptions, and continuously seek improvement. So, as we reflect on our Agile experiences, let's hold onto the notion that every disappointment carries the seeds of knowledge and growth.”

– Jim Highsmith, Agile Manifesto Co-author
