Agile development is not about doing a set of practices, it's about a way of "being," it's about learning. How is this learning accomplished? By taking brief pauses after small experiments, even large problems can be solved. In a recent Harvard Business Review interview of Toyota's president, he observed, "...when 70 years of very small improvements accumulate, they become a revolution."

Born to cycle?An agile approach to working
Linda Risingwww.lindarising.orglinda@lindarising.org
 
Are we hardwired for cycles?
This is different from running around incircles, although that may be part of it!
In
earless Chane
a useful metahor for
 
working toward any goal is—a journey.
We recommend a “carry-on bag” of a handfulof patterns:
Test the Waters
,
Time for Reflection
,
Small Successes
,
Step by Step
.
This learning cycle repeats throughout.
 
Why is this a good approach?
You see the next step more clearly after eachstep is completed.
You learn about the goal. You adjust the goal.
Your customer/user/other stakeholders alsolearn and adjust.
Chaos does not go away. Change continues toimpact the journey. Perfection is neverreached.
You can’t plan all this in the beginning.
