I think when people say big A Agile, they're referring to dogmatic process people, and not really Agile people.

Yes. Big A means “doing”, little a means “being”.

but why doesn't big A mean being? The Agile Manifesto, for me, is about being. It's a puzzle for me.

Big A was hijacked long ago by people with something to sell. There's no taking it back. Move forward instead.

I agree that big A means the Agile Manifesto [values and principles], and that's how I use it.

wondering what's forward? Lean? Or is it "lean"? Is it moving forward or retreating?

Let's just stop using it. Call it "software development" or some such.

What's forward is still Agile. I concentrate on effectiveness rather than brands. //

"Big A" is just a pejorative brand. I think talking about it only confuses people wanting help.

I also concentrate on effectiveness. Not on buzzwords.

To me, "Big A" in is a buzzword, and not a useful one.
