Discover Agile and Scrum through Games
Presented by: Stephanie Vineyard
Are you curious how the Agile principles apply to analysis work? Do you prefer learning through games instead of death-by-powerpoint? Do you want to learn more about the core values of Scrum?
The updated Agile Extension to the BABOK explores how analysts can apply agile techniques to improve their skills and increase the success of their organization. As businesses transform to keep up with customer needs, we need to understand Agile principles and Scrum practices to enable success.
Join us in this session to learn the 12 Agile Principles and the 5 Scrum Values through a series of 4 games. This is session is highly interactive and features experiential learning. Additionally, you leave this session with instructions on how to facilitate these games in your own organizations.
- Game 1: Learn the value of self-directed teams built on respect and commitment
- Game 2: Learn the value of continuous improvement, openness, and courage
- Game 3: Learn the value of limiting work in process and having a team focus
- Game 4: Summarize and reinforce our learnings
