I was cleaning up today and came across some resources I had collected from the Agile 2015 conference in Washington, D.C. Sanjiv Augustine and his team from LitheSpeed had a booth where I spun a wheel and won a set of pre-printed Cards for Agility game cards.
I was pleased to see that the deck is easily printable (as my set was a little bent). It looks like a fun game to play with a team adjusting to Agile practices.
The original post describes the game and the instructions and has links to the scenario (yellow) and answer (white) card packs.
At Agile 2017, Sally Elatta from AgilityHealth asked me to do a short video on Agile portfolio management.
You can watch it directly on Vimeo.
My presentation from YOW! Hong Kong 2017 and YOW! Singapore 2017 called “Agile Coaching Nightmares: Lessons We Can Learn From Gordon Ramsay” is available on Slideshare.
When you look for inspiration in the Agile Coaching community, the name Gordon Ramsay is probably not the first name to come to mind. He has been known to be belligerent, condescending and downright rude, but underneath this brute facade is a treasure trove of skills and talents that influence change.
In this presentation we will draw insights from his ‘Kitchen Nightmare’ escapades and draw parallels with how much his work aligns with that of an Agile Coach and the goal to successfully drive change and introduce a number of models and techniques that are indispensable in the coaching toolkit.
Here are some tweets and feedback from the talk:
