Midrange MagazinAgile Methods can’t be bought - but they can be learned: this is the premise of the article that I have penned for the May, 2016 issue of the German publication Midrange Magazin.

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. 

In the article we argue that Agile methods help companies to adapt quickly to changing market conditions and remain competitive, provided that the principles of agile actions are understood and supported by all stakeholders in the company.

These companies used continuous improvement techniques to develop the methods that we have now copied into the framework, and they have also evolved on from there. Unfortunately continuous improvement is old news and difficult to sell, so our framework carefully omits the underlying philosophy and jumps ...
