What’s in a name? Emergile is a portmanteau of emergence and agility. Agility is an emergent property. Whether it be people trying to respond more flexibly to life’s challenges or organisations striving to adapt to their environment. Conversely, agile methods can nudge the emergence of desirable outcomes.
We apply this same thinking to our software. Great software should create the conditions that reinforce better decisions. And it should be flexible to adapt and respond as the environment changes. This is behavior first engineering. Done right, software can encourage the emergence of positive change.
Agile emergence. Emergent agility.
