AGILE SMARTER WORKING MANIFESTO
Becoming more flexible and working smarter should be at the heart of transforming and streamlining organisations. Work in the 21st century is about what you do, not where you do it. We are uncovering better and smarter ways of working by doing it and helping others do it. We believe that Smart Working makes a difference to the Triple Bottom Line, bringing benefits for the business, for the people who work there, and for the environment.
People and teams over structure and organization charts
Self-managing teams over centrally managed groups
Results over task management
Getting things done over processes
Responding to change over following a plan
That does not mean we do not value the items to the right. They can be extremely important. However, we value the items on the left more.
Principles behind the Agile and Smart Working Manifesto.
We are about:
Simplicity - the art of maximizing the amount of work not done is essential.
Collaboration and Innovation - Creating digital and office environments that facilitate collaboration and innovation.
Effectiveness - Increasing the effectiveness of our activities
Work Outcomes - Focusing our work on outcomes rather than processes
Work Life Balance - Meeting the aspirations of employees for an improved work-life balance
Reducing waste - Reducing the financial costs of running an organisation
Environment - Reducing the environmental footprint of our working practices.
