[ Sorry due to lack of interest this workshop has been cancelled. ]
Why self-organizing teams? Why do iterative approaches work better? What should a good stand-up feel like? These concepts and others related to the Agile Manifesto will be explored in this workshop, facilitated jointly by Nicholas and Diane.
This is a highly interactive workshop where you will learn key agile principles by playing games, enacting skits, and watching demonstrations. We're going to have fun! There will be plenty of discussion following each exercise. Come to learn core agile principles or help learn new ways of teaching agile.
Proof of Attendance forms will be provided for PMI (PDU), ASQ (RU) and PDMA (PDH) re-certifications
