What does it mean when a nonprofit professional, team, or organization says that they are Agile?
To our team at Agile in Nonprofits, it means that they embrace the 4 Agile values that are articulated in the Agile Manifesto.
Individuals and Interactions OVER Processes and Tools
Working Product OVER Comprehensive Documentation
Customer Collaboration OVER Contract Negotiation
Responding to Change OVER Following a Plan
While we don’t ignore or forget about the items on the right, if we say we are Agile, it means that we value items on the left more.
In valuing the items on the left more, our teams and organizations can develop better ways of working as a team and achieve what we KNOW is possible…creating twice the impact in half the time.

*The Agile Manifesto is an internationally accepted set of values and principles. While it originated in software development, we know and have proof of how these same values and principles work in nonprofit and charitable organizations.
