What is Solution Focused Agile?

Solution Focused Agile is more than a name. Innovation often emerges from the big bang at the intersection of ideas and disciplines–the Medici Effect. And Solution Focused Agile is such a mashup of techniques from multiple disciplines, primarily Agile and Solution Focused Therapy.

The Agile Alliance defines Agile as “the ability to create and respond to change in order to succeed in an uncertain and turbulent environment.” The Centre for Solutions Focus at Work defines Solutions-Focused Management as “an incisive way of building positive change in tough situations…with roots in ‘brief therapy’ and a long and well-established heritage in many contexts including organisational change, education, conflict resolution and coaching.

For more on Solution Focused Agile, see my article here in the January 2019 edition of InterAction, the Journal of Solution Focus in Organizations.

And listen to Alistair Cockburn talk about Solution Focused Agile here in my Agile on the Edge podcast interview.
