Introduction to Team Agility
Team Agility is based on Lean-Thinking and Agile. It can be considered an integration of Scrum, Kanban and eXtreme Programming based on Lean-Thinking. It is based on principles which have proven to be valuable and recognizes no one-size-fits-all. Team Agility is defined by looking at what is needed to be accomplished at the team level and then incorporates practices of Scrum and Kanban when appropriate. This enables a concrete set of practices while being tailored for the teams using it.
