My presentation from the itSMF NT Q1 Meeting in Darwin, Northern Territory called “40 Agile Methods in 40 Minutes” is available on Slideshare.
With 73% of the world using Scrum as their predominant Agile method, which has a direct impact on service management, this session will open up your eyes to the many other Agile and edgy Agile methods and movements in the world today. For many, Agile is a toolbox of potential methods, practices and techniques, and like any good toolbox it is often more about using the right tool for the problem that will result in meaningful results. You may also be surprised about how many methods have a direct relation or reliance on service management as well as the wider organisational structure and culture. So let’s take a rapid journey into the world of methods like Mikado, Nonban, Vanguard and movements like Holocracy, Drive and Stoos where we will uncover 40 methods and movements in 40 minutes to help strengthen your understanding and toolbox.
It was an honour to be invited to Darwin to present this talk to the Darwin tech community who are a small but extremely passionate community. Here are some photos:

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.
