XSCALE Alliance has agreed to a Memorandum of Understanding with Business Agility Institute:
Business Agility Institute ("BAI") and XSCALE Alliance ("XA") enjoy strong thematic alignment. BAI is an advocacy, membership and research organization that promotes the structure, mindset, and behaviour of an agile organisation. XA is a Linux-style ecosystem of independent service providers that promotes specific agile organisation principles and practice-patterns. This Memorandum is to confirm the commitment of the two to interoperate for the mutual benefit of all members. In 2018 each will offer the following benefits:
27 January 2018 by Evan Leybourn and Peter Merel for XSCALE Alliance and Business Agility Institute.
Evan Leybourn’s BAI ran the world’s first Business Agility Conference in New York in 2017 and lit the way forward with the most comprehensive and detailed taxonomy of agile organization today.
XSCALE’s principles and pattern languages provide an agnostic praxis to fulfil the BAI taxonomy., We’re chopping down the Agile greasy pole of vanity certificates to provide a #NoFramework ecosystem of independent coaches collaborating on the Linux of the agile world - an open content kernel wrapped in commercial training, coaching and tooling products.
XSCALE has signed an MOU with BAI to make it clear that each supports the other. People scrap over Agile frameworks but for us these arguments fall away when we focus on business throughput first. Which is why we say Agile in IT is nonsense. Meaningful agility lives and dies with the business.
