Railroad tracksThe Agile Manifesto summarizes the underlying philosophy and approach behind one of the hottest new computer programming languages called Ruby on Rails:

  • individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  • working software over comprehensive documentation
  • customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • responding to change over following a plan

These principles easily map onto how change should be managed in organizations. Just like a programming language, organizations need to be agile in order to accommodate changing needs and environments, or face the prospect of being obsolete and outclassed by the competition.
