Collaborate, Deliver, Reflect, and Improve (Heart of Agile)

At the end of the day, our customers don’t care whether I practice Agile, Lean or anything else. They care about great products and services that solve meaningful problems in effective ways. I focus with them on satisfying customer needs, collaborating, reflecting and improving, making all people (teams, stakeholders, users) involved motivated and happy – no matter which methodology they practice. (words inspired by Jeff Gothelf)
