Agile adjective 1. Characterized by quickness, lightness, and ease of movement; nimble. 2. Mentally quick or alert. (The American Heritage dictionary definition)
Wikipedia outlines Agile in relation to software development as “Agile software development is a group of software development methods based on iterative and incremental development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing, cross-functional teams.”
Now take the concept of agile software development and apply it to your pitch deck. It could read as: “Agile pitching is a group of presentation development methods based on iterative and incremental development, where key points and messaging evolve through peer collaboration.”
The goal of pitch deck creation is not perfection. Practice does make perfect, and today, entrepreneurs have access to more peers to practice that pitch, and iterate to discover messages that resonate. That is what we call Agile Pitching.
Agile pitching encourages entrepreneurs to get out much earlier practicing their pitch than they would have otherwise been comfortable with. Agile pitching teaches us to think about every pitch as a learning experience and not as 15 minutes of fame.
