Using the Heart of Agile on the problem of scaling | Alistair Cockburn

1. Independent of anything else going on, how will you increase collaboration?
2. Accounting for everything else going on, how will you increase trial and actual deliveries to consumers?
3. How will you get people to pause and reflect on what’s happening to and around them?
4. What experiments will your people do at different levels in the organization to make a small improvement?

This is a good concept from Alistair.  Let’s not get hung up on terminology, new phrases, and things like that.  Let’s focus on what is at the heart of agile and ask ourselves how we are doing there.  Sounds similar to what Mike Cottmeyer has been saying recently (see Teams, Backlogs, Working Testing Software) that he really focuses on three core things to determine how agile a company is.
