      It’s Time to Level Up

      Level Up is a collection of tips and lessons that have been provided by some of the most recognized organizations in the world. The hope is that by combining the lessons into a simple framework, others can avoid potential pitfalls and create an easier path to success.

      When implementing the Agile Management System be careful to take one step at a time. Always have a big vision for the future, but make sure to break it down into small flags for accomplishment. Celebrate success and investigate your failures. Make pivots if you must, but keep moving forward.

      Keep this playbook close. Highlight sections, underline words, and make notes in the margins. Dog ear the pages and add some of your own knowledge as you find things that work for you. Work to share your favorite ideas with others and make the services firm a little easier for all.

      Have fun. Be optimistic. Unite and conquer.
