Our Story

WHY?

Simon Powers founded Adventures with Agile to tackle the problems large organisations face when moving to agile ways of working. Everything we do is underpinned by our vision to making working life better. We believe that organisations which are optimised around shared collaboration, communication and iterative approach to work improves the way we make products and services, which has the knock-on effect of making our lives better at work and home.

Organisations are only as able as their leadership, their structure and the resulting culture. Confusion, lack of emotional intelligence, and underlying beliefs that conflict with agile values are often the cause. Adventures with Agile addresses this in a number of ways, initially by making the most influential people in the agile world accessible through free events and training. In 2016, we launched our consultancy to provide contextual support to organisations and a secure and private platform for the members of the community called the “AWA Support Network”.

We Believe:

  • real change starts from within
  • together we can help each other with that change
  • people are more important than process
  • the world needs better leaders
  • we / you are the leaders we have been waiting for
