Transcendence and Passing Through the Gate

Summary
"Being Agile" is a state of mind achieved when the practitioner has transcended Agile practice (phase three of agile according to Kent Beck). This presentation will show how following agile values, ideas, and practices lead the practitioner to the threshold of transcendence. We will also talk about how to take the final step: from "Doing Agile" to "Being Agile!"
