    Thanks Patric and Peter, great discussion.
    How would you differentiate nimble from agile?
    Thanks,
    Bart

    Hi Bart,

    I posed your question to Peter and here is what he shared. I hope this is helpful.

    “Agile is a loaded term as it is a mentality while also describing a specific set of methods for development. The latter can make the former cloudy. Finding a different term to describe the mindset, culture, processes, technology-change, ecosystem, strategy, and the like are aided by referencing “nimbleness” as opposed to agility. Therefore, nimble is a more comprehensive term, in my mind.” – Peter High
