Autonomy in decision-making is the most important feature of agile working. To organise work with both reliability and transparency, the widest possible variety of collaborative working methods are used, with each individual business giving the appropriate weighting to each method. Among the most well-known methodologies used by agile working are Design Thinking, Kanban, Scrum and Lean Startup. All these disciplines are often combined with traditional project management methods. Flat hierarchies and decentralised decision-making structures, genuine contact and empathy with customers, improved communication and a culture that treats errors constructively are all essential attributes for independent, agile working.
