SPS-MAGAZIN
German publication SPS-MAGAZIN, specialized in automation technology, has published an article with the title Agile Transition als Lernprozess (Agile Transition as a Learning Process) in the issue of April 2016.

An Agile Transition cannot be completed with specific tools or methods but requires the willingness to learn and to continous improvement.

These are the most important aspects of the agile42 approach.
