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 December 2, we’ll do Discover Your Authentic Voice, led by Linsey Dempsey of Sing at Work. First, we’ll learn how to relax the body. Then we’ll do a bunch of fun vocal warm-ups. Finally, we’ll focus on the three main components that make up your sound, three things that we all have access to and that we can all change: acoustics, breathing, and pressure. Outcomes of Sing at Work’s work at work include better communications, identifying leadership qualities, improved morale, improved productivity, increasing employee confidence, and improving mental and physical health & wellbeing. (By the way, you’ll want a metal straw with you for one of the activities.)
- 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.)
