1* Agile is not nothing

Sometimes when people learn about the Agile Fluency Model they think of the first zone as "not very good". We should of course be aiming for one of the higher zones, right?

Maybe. You have to figure out which is the best zone for your context. Focus on Value is awesome in itself. As describe by Arlo Belshee:

  • Plan and work in units of value, not in technical components.
  • Deliver their work by unit of value, even when that cross-cuts with the technical design.
  • Regularly focus on the 20% of the work with the highest value and drop the rest.
  • Regularly inspect and adapt. Own their own people, practices, platform, and data, and improve them constantly.

It's also not easy. Many teams are not there and would need a lot of work to get there. Don't take it for granted.
