Making Agile Easier Feb 2020 | Let's Get This Decade Startad
With the new decade fully underway it’s a great time to stop and reflect on what you’re trying to achieve.
Take some time to map out your year ahead. What skills do you want to learn? What’s the first step you need to take?
Maybe you haven’t processed last year yet.
Now is as good a time as any to hold a personal retrospective:
- What worked well in 2019?
- What didn’t work well?
- What can I change?
We took some time to look at 2019 and put the highlights in a fancy infographic: Easy Agile Year in Review
Scaling up? It might be time to introduce PI Planning. Check out: The Ultimate Guide to PI Planning (2020 SAFe update).

Rachel, Senior Product Manager at Disney, sent us her story:
“We were getting a lot of requests for very complex apps like BigPicture and Portfolio, but when we did a trial of those apps, nobody could use them effectively.
So we thought we’d start simple and see if we could address at least 80% of the business need with a much more lightweight solution.
So far, nobody has asked for something else after trying the Easy Agile apps. So - big win!”
Thanks Rachel. P.S. Awesome Star Wars photo 🤓
