The agile school of thought is humankind's recent upward quantum leap in upgrading its work ethics. We may draw many parallels between Agile and the Dharma, as defined by ancient rishis of India. Both are concerned with how human beings should work for universal good individually and collectively. The fact that Agile continues to prove its relevance to more and more fields of human activity confirms this. Shivakumar Venkatraman's book Toward Adaptive Product Delivery explains to all the interested persons how to maximize the benefits of this boon of Adaptive methods.
