Agile mindset and our surroundings

Updated: Jun 29, 2023

Hello dear readers!

I want to express my deepest and most sincere gratitude for your love towards my first-ever blog: Evolution of Cricket: From Curved Bats to Twenty20.

In this second blog, I am going to talk about Agile Mindset and how we can relate it to our everyday experiences.

Everyone has a different way of understanding a topic and so is mine. I try to relate my knowledge with my everyday experiences, it deepens my understanding and makes learning more meaningful.

Now the main question is, are we new to the Agile Mindset?

Agile Methodology or project management is a vast subject and I'm still learning. We will discuss the very basics of Agile Methodology to stick with the blog topic.

In simple words, thinking agile means, we must (and are not limited to):

  • Welcome change

  • Focus on short, value-driven delivery cycles

  • Learn through discovery

  • Continuously deliver

  • Empower your team and customer

  • Encourage others to do the same.

Now, let's discuss each of the above topics and see if you can relate the same.

  1. Welcome Change: Humans have a good history of welcoming change. One practical example of how humans have proven to be open to change is the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic. When the pandemic first emerged, many people quickly adapted their behavior by wearing masks, practicing social distancing, and working from home.

  2. Focus on short, value-driven delivery cycles: I remember how my parents used to distribute different work between all the siblings based on our capabilities. My parents always encouraged us to take one step at a time, based on the importance of the steps. I can still remember their advice, "multitasking is a good skill to have but doing multi tasks at the same time can damage the result".

  3. Learn through discovery: From our childhood, we started questioning our parents anything we were curious about. Only by being curious, we explore and discover almost everything in our life.

  4. Continuously deliver: This is again not new for us; I have a good example from my favorite topic "Cricket". Consistency is the hallmark of a great batsman, delivering continuously is what makes you a good batsman. If a person scores a century in one match and failed in the next five matches, he/she is not consistent. Continuous delivery is important, and we all are well aware of this fact.

  5. Empower your team and customer: We all understand that by embracing the power of empowerment, individuals and organizations can achieve greater success, engagement, and satisfaction. If you are a captain of a cricket team, then it applies to you as well.

  6. Encourage others to do the same: When we are convinced about our process, we encourage others to follow the same. In practical life, when we encourage others to follow a better way of life, we create a positive impact that inspires more kindness and positivity around us.

This is not the end, as I said earlier, Agile Methodology is a big topic to discover. If you want me to write on any specific topic of Agile Project Management, then please do let me know through our contact section on the Home Page.

Use the below polls to answer the question and we will review this in a few days.
