Agile Narrative Project Sensemaking on Agile Adoptions

 

Building a better future requires that we understand the events that created the present. The Agile Narrative Project is about building a deeper understanding of the stories and experiences that influence today's Agile adoptions in order to identify trends and improve outcomes.

Your voice, expressed in the narrative and signification data you submit, will join a chorus of hundreds of other stories. We will use the data to:

  • Identify both strong and weak patterns across thousands of narratives
  • Identify both the positive and negative themes in those patterns
  • Experiment with ways we can amplify the positive themes and dampen the negative ones
  • Monitor and track trends in our great Agile community

Narratives are submitted anonymously. We do not track email addresses, login info, IP addresses, or any user data that identifies the person who entered the story. That said, it is up to you to provide as little or as much detail as you feel comfortable sharing. Stories will not be used outside of the goals outlined above. Submitted stories become the property of the Agile Alliance.

Thank you for helping us to build a stronger Agile community of practice!
