The Agnostic Agile Oath

The Agnostic Agile Oath is a movement that aims at recognizing the importance of being agnostic with agility at any level. As it is stated on the web site: “one size does not fit all, one framework is not the answer, and the what’s and the how’s of what needs to be done, should be suited to customer context and to a wider strategic vision.”

All these intentions are expressed in a oath that anybody can sign the oath. You may be an individual practitioner or a company wanting to display your ongoing commitment to agnostic agility. The twelve points of the Agnostic Agile Oath are:
1. To put my customer first, making them independent.
2. To do my best, complementing theory with practical experience.
3. To tailor agility to context.
4. To understand hindering constraints and work to remove them.
5. To share, learn and improve.
6. To respect other frameworks and their practitioners.
7. To acknowledge unknowns and seek help.
8. To never mislead and to never misrepresent.
9. To remember that agility is not the end goal.
10. To acknowledge that dogmatism is non-agile.
11. To recognize that there is more to agile than agile.
12. To give to the community as it has given to me.
