World's Shortest Agile Summary

Thanks to George Dinwiddie and Mark Levinson and that marvel we call Twitter, your agile otter presents the worlds briefest summation of Agile:
  • Do small things supremely well, and let them add up to large things.
  • Use feedback to steer to the results you want.
  • Defeat problems with teamwork.
  • Maintain an even strain.


  1. Cool list, except that I don't know what "Maintain an even strain" means. I think I might, but it's a little too dense a phrase.

    Could be an Agile in a Flash card!

  2. Cool! I think it's great to boil it down into concepts that can all fit in the brain at the same time.

  3. How is "sustainable, energetic work level week-over-week?"
