Agile is a set of values and principles that are outlined in the Agile Manifesto. Agile allows teams to work with greater collaboration and fewer barriers. Agile promotes quick iteration to increase adaptability and a “fail fast” mentality.
The Agile RI group was launched with the intent of nurturing this cooperative approach throughout Rhode Island. We bring together Agile practitioners and those who want to learn more. We believe that Agile can facilitate organizational success through the empowerment of teams.
