Looking for a good time? Join the Agile Dojo!
The Agile Dojo is a safe place to learn and practice your Agile skills.
Let’s play an Agile Game together. What’s an agile game? An agile game is a playful activity that either teaches you something about agile or helps you get real work done.
Each month, we’ll learn and practice a new activity. You’ll learn something new about Agile, learn how to facilitate an activity, and learn a new way to get your real work done.
Our backlog of activities:
- On October 7, we’ll play Understanding What It Means To Be Agile, led by Nicola Dourambeis. Have you ever encountered someone who thinks Agile is Jira, stand-ups, and post-its? For the last 15 years Nicola has anchored every training class she teaches with this activity. It gets people away from mechanics and helps them identify what it really means to be agile—and how it feels. Join us to play the activity and experience a new way of learning. Nicola is an executive agile coach who specializes in large-scale transformations at companies such as salesforce.com, athenahealth, and eBay.
- Past sessions have included Build Your Own Scrum: Online, Agile Point Game, Product Inception Canvas, Team Transformation Canvas, and more. We’ll begin 2021 with a Futurespective and continue with a backlog of awesome fun activities. (Looking for awesome fun activities for your team? Here are more than 15 activities to use with your amazing team.)
