This post marks the beginning of a new Agile experiment supported by BERTEIG.
Quite simply, the idea is to apply Agile methods and principles outlined in the Agile Manifesto to a social action project at a neighbourhood level.
The objective is to use the empowering principles of Agile to help eliminate the extremes between wealth and poverty.
The approach is to pair up one family who has items to share with another family who is in need in order to provide a weekly care package including food and other basic care supplies.
The sharing takes place in the real world with the delivery of a package weekly but also corresponds to an online platform which allows for the sharing to happen at an sustainable cadence.
The initiative was formally launched three weeks ago and this video is the first which addresses some basic structures of the framework. This video is a bit like a one-person retrospective.
One of the principles of BERTEIG is to strive to create unity and to be of service to humanity. This socio-economic Agile experiment is a way in which BERTEIG is reaching out to help others and contributing towards the advancement of a small neighbourhood moving along the continuum from poverty to prosperity, materially and spiritually.
