Agile is hot. Hotter than ever. I have been an agilist for over ten years. Last year I got the privilege to start working with Joshua Kerievsky founder of Industrial Logic.
Last year Joshua found the overarching principle that we all at Industrial Logic believe is the one key element that has not received a lot of the attention, but has always implicitly been build in in most of the agile practices. That key element is safety. In Japanse this word translates to anzen.
Our job has changed from teaching and coaching people agile practices to protecting people. We are now anzeneers.
You can find Joshua’s blog about anzeneering here.
