The agile movement
Agile manefesto
Agile on the beach.

I’ve been thinking about Agile principles, how these are integrated within a business and how this  appears to function within the I.T department in contrast to other departments within the company. 

I am currently thinking about the tension between agile practices and the everyday world in which this interacts. I was thinking about the hiercahies of finance and Human Resources which are structured as a tiered system rather than an agile systemic one. 

I am in no doubt about the benefits of agile thinking and I am aware of the challenges where different models of practice meet.
