012 - Yola & Co And the Viking Laws

Sometimes you encounter situations or ideas that makes you wonder why this reflects perfectly on the Agile mindset.

Also this time when my colleague and I were confronted with the Viking Laws by Rolf Dräther (Happycentric) at ACCNL16. To support her blogpost on labs.sogeti.com I created a new Yola & Co. comic. She refers to these laws from an Agile perspective. Can you refer to these laws in an Agile way?
