Socializing Principles

In the Agile Canvas process that structures my collaboration work, one of the 5 core conversations in the model is the Principles conversation. When a group shares common explicit working principles it moves more easily through decision making and people stay engaged. I've now updated the definition of Principles to include a social component. To the original core of principles, "what matters most to us," we now give consideration to who else we could and should invite into the process who has resources that would mutually benefit them and everyone. This socializes our principles, making them pivots for inclusion and engagement. Very powerful and critical to forming vibrant resource networks.
