Luke Hohmann on Being Agile and Doing Agile at AgileCamp

Father, mother, son, daughter–all of these terms connote both being and doing. What does it mean to be a daughter or mother, father or son? Manager and leader are other words with the concepts of being and doing built into it: what is a manager/leader and what does he or she do? Luke is championing the term “Agilist” as a person who is and does Agile. When doing and being are aligned–in other words, when an individual is and does their role, whether father or leader–their output is better. Luke proposes what he calls “serious play” as a way to get individuals to be and do their roles. “When you’re in a state of play,” he shares, “your doing and being are more aligned. You’re actually in a place mentally when you’re fully engaged.”
