StrategicPlay at Scan-Agile

Last week, I facilitated a StrategicPlay session at ScanAgile titled “Agile Community Building – Using StrategicPlay with Lego”. Participants co-created a vision of the perfect agile community. We captured the teams presenting their models on video. Enjoy the inspiration!

The Agile Elephant

The first presentation shows “Agile” on the back of an elephant (the similarity to Discworld was intentional, I heard later) confronting the established mindset... Note the reference to Brian Marick.

Ivory Tower of Knowledge

Valuable ideas are created and brought to the customer. Flowers, a disco ball, and a flag, of course.

Agile Inspires Betterness

We currently witness the beginning of a new era. It has been given various names, as nobody is yet able to predict its nature. It’s been called the conceptual age, information is not enough anymore. Relationships become more important, where “knowledge stacks are replaced by knowledge flows”. Abundance, connections and choice change the game: “Mass is dead. Here comes weird.”

Classical strategic planning is based upon the assumption of a slowly changing future. This assumption is wrong.”

Noah Rahford 

We currently witness the beginning of a new era. It has been given various names, as nobody is yet able to predict its nature. It’s been called the conceptual age, information is not enough anymore. Relationships become more important, where “knowledge stacks are replaced by knowledge flows”. Abundance, connections and choice change the game: “Mass is dead. Here comes weird.” 

It’s a paradigm shift. We haven't yet figured out where it will lead our kind, as we can ...

Agile With Non-Software Teams

It is quite interesting to note how little most software developers know about hardware development. Many of us take it for granted that hardware development cannot match the pace of software. While this might be true for the case of the best software teams, able to update a software system every few minutes using continuous integration, for the common pace of biweekly software delivery this is nothing more than a false assumption.

At today’s ScrumTisch, the first chosen topic by the crowd was how to do Agile with non-software teams. We started the discussion with a short list of questions:

  • What to show at the end of the timebox?
  • How to set the length of the timebox?

Interestingly, these questions, although raised by the audience, apparently were not hot enough to actually get discussed... (the topic Agile Beyond Software is much broader than this post, I’m just covering what was discussed tonight—a touch on the surface...)

Hardware

It turned out, that the person suggesting the topic actually had a ...

Agile With a Purpose

Agile might still be a small niche which apparently is not yet recognised by the “serious” business thinkers’ community. There seem to be people out there who are rethinking management and business for the 21st century, and we are not connected to them although collaboration between us could produce great results.

“Happy New Year! 2012 won't know what's hit it”.

                      Dave Sharrock after the agile42 Internal Coach Camp

We want to make Dave’s prediction a reality with the Agile with a Purpose blast (projects don’t hit, right?). We want you to know why we’re doing it.

Prepare to be astonished!
