Session: Location, Location, Location: The 3 Faces of Environment (or How the Kindergarten Classroom is a Model for Agile)

Hyper-productive Scrum environments, like kindergarten classrooms, involve the team in an experience that is guided by conscious manipulation of three types of environments, physical, psychological and procedural. Using the kindergarten classroom as a metaphor and as a model, learn how you can crank up your team’s experiential learning with Information Radiators, Story Time, and Group Play.

This experiential workshop will introduce you to novel Agile games and challenge you to use your kindergarten spirit to spontaneously create games yourself. Attend this session and walk away with a pragmatic three point environment checklist that will transform learning with astonishing results!

Agile 101B for April 3, 2014

Session: Know when to hold ‘em, Know when to fold ‘em - Design your next contract coaching gig

Whether you are an independent contractor or working through an employment agency, the goal here is to help you uncover better ways to design your next Scrum/ Agile Coaching gig to create that elusive winning hand. For you and the organization.

Your coaching activity plays out against a backdrop of organizational addiction - usually to "Command and Control" tactics as the best way to get things done. Against that backdrop, we'll look at two techniques you can use to analyze the game so that you charter your gig with the odds in your favor.

The two analysis techniques are:

- "Six Degrees of Separation from the Agile Spark"

- "The Gambler - Know when to hold ‘em..."

This is a mini-version of the session that Nancy V. and Steve Holyer will present at the May Scrum Gathering in New Orleans.

About the session leader:

Nancy Van Schooenderwoert was among the first to apply Agile methods to embedded systems development, as an engineer, manager, and consultant. Beginning in 1998 she has led Agile change initiatives beyond software development in safety-critical, highly regulated industries, and coached clients in the art of Agile technical and management leadership. A contributor to Agile Times and Cutter IT Journal, she also served on IEEE 1648 Agile Customers committee.
