Introducing Hummingbird Agile
Hummingbird Agile is a true and distinctive alternative to scrum or any of the scaling frameworks that currently exist in the market.
Hummingbird Agile is a fresh and frameless approach to agile delivery, reigniting the focus back to delivery speed, engineering excellence and high-worth value. In this world fast-paced market and compliance driven demands, companies need a delivery engine that adapts and responds more quickly without sacrificing quality.

Boldly re-imagine agile as more than just a mindset, but a burning quest to produce and deliver sustenance to the consumer with speed, excellence and high worth.
Hummingbird Agile is an agile delivery ecosystem inspired by the agility of the hummingbird.
Aligned to the Agile Manifesto and it's 12 principles, the Hummingbird Delivery Ecosystem streamlines efficiency with 6 core principles.
The 6 Principles of Hummingbird Agile
“Aligned to the Agile Manifesto and it's 12 principles, the Hummingbird Agile advances and improves delivery efficiency with 6 core principles.”
Hummingbird values sense-and-respond practices over predict-and-plan, building a perpetual-discovery, continuous-delivery approach that drastically improves the speed of incremental value delivery to the customer.
P2: Producer Centric:
Hummingbird Agile promotes empowerment and autonomy for team members. It’s proven that autonomous, purposeful producers stay much more engaged and focused on the customer’s needs and sharper attention to details and house-keeping.
P3: Just Enough, Just in Time:
In the planning and delivery of business value and architecture stability, much thought and intentionality are placed into sizing and pruning work to eliminate any waste, delivering only what is needed at the time.
P4: Zero-Meeting Mindset:
In order to promote and accomplish a perpetual-discovery, continuous-value delivery environment, Hummingbird Agile has created a way for teams to get continuous clarity and alignment around the work while still remaining heads-down productive.
P5: Regulate on Value, not Velocity:
It’s proven that smaller and well-understood batch sizes decrease variability and increase predictability. This combination produces short and more reliable cycle times, resulting in faster value delivery.
P6: Metrics that Matter:
We teach companies to focus on the fix rather than the failure. Our metrics focus not only on what happened, but the patterns, behaviors, and anti-patterns behind it. This brings better clarity on how to continually improve.
