What holds our surprisingly diverse community together? That's something we like to ask ourselves and each other, and the answers look something like these:


– because we're more interested in what we can accomplish with others than in what we can achieve alone


– because every situation is unique, to be explored and developed in ways both tried-and-tested and novel


– because meeting people’s needs, goals, and wishes brings meaning, direction, and pleasure


– because we're still uncovering better ways of working and new ways in which to combine them

We share this as an invitation. If in any capacity you're in the business of Lean-Agile transformation and these words resonate with you, read on.
