New Reads For An Old Practice

Agile is no longer new, but its interpretations and applications continue to evolve. The second wave of agile literature comes with heightened expectations – to offer not just strategies, but practical solutions adjusting to our ever-accelerating world.

Agile Books 2.0: More Than Just Frameworks

While the first wave of agile books laid the foundation, the new scripts bring agile into the 21st century. They unpack the nuances of adapting agile in a remote work environment and demonstrate how agile principles can meld with other methodologies to produce hybrid models.

  • Agile & Remote Synergy: Many teams are distributed across continents. How does agile fit into this picture? The new books offer answers.
  • Hybrid Methodologies: Combining agile with design thinking or DevOps? It's in there, showcasing how agile's versatility is its strength.
