This good mindset, and good values exist without agile. They would have existed if no-one ever invented the word agile in the software context. It is like saying socialism is not a certain way to organize your economy, but a mindset of sharing, and the values of caring for each other. Sharing and caring exists without socialism. Replace socialism with agile.
In 'Learning Agile' (p164), Jenny and I wrote wrote:To understand if you’re ready for respect, ask if you, your team, and your boss are OK with:
• Trusting the team to do the right thing, and deliver each feature at the best possible date based on relative value and how the project progresses—even if it causes the project to take longer than you expect?
• Giving the team enough time to do the work, and not demanding overtime of them?
• Trusting the team to choose the tasks that are right for them and for the project, rather than relying on strict roles, RACI matrices, etc.?
• Not being able to ever say again that you don’t know why the team decided to do something the way they did?
