The primary purpose of the OSA method is to bring transformation and development to organizations, via structured experimentation with Agile principles and practices.

The words “development” and “transformation” suggest high levels of learning, adaptation and improvement. Since the OSA method is designed with these goals in mind, it is natural to expect the OSA method itself to change substantially over time.

The OSA method came into being officially in September of 2013, at the Global Scrum Gathering in Paris France where it was the subject of keynote on Day 2. Since then, the name has changed, and there has been refinement in many of the existing components.

The current version of OpenSpace Agility is Version 1.0.

Over time we can expect OSA to evolve and improve. As it does, the version number and big-picture diagram can be expected to change as well.
