Embrace Change

Embrace Change

By Casey Helbling

One of the principles of Agile, a methodology for iterative and flexible software development, is Embrace Change. The principle says, “Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer’s competitive advantage.”

Software for Good is officially in a new space and entering a new phase of our company. Our office inside Impact Hub MSP at the new Finnegans House building requires a lot of changes, from figuring out parking and who makes the coffee, to wondering how this new environment will affect our culture and processes.

Although change can be scary, it’s important for us to embrace change and see its potential. The Agile principle says that changes in technical requirements should not only be welcomed, but harnessed, and can become a competitive advantage. That’s true in life, too. Change allows us to see new perspectives and find unexpected possibilities. At Software for Good, we’re embracing uncertainty and shaking up our routine because we believe in the potential of this community of social entrepreneurs and impactful businesses. We invite you to embrace change with us and see what’s next.
