It's been a long time since a "Homegrown Agile" post! What I love about life is the constant reaffirmation of how agility is both applied in and learned from our environment and from nature. This past weekend was just one of those where I saw agility applied (or applied agility in values) to a simple … Continue reading Homegrown Agile: The Lawn
