Workshop: Exploring The ‘Fluffy’ Side Of Agile

On face value, an agile approach is common sense. Attend some meetings, create and update some artefacts, build a product. But the real challenges arise not from the introduction of process, but from the changes required by people. The transition to agile delivery involves a shift in human behaviour, and requires those involved increasing levels of communication and collaboration in order to transform into a great team that can achieve great things. But are we all really prepared to change those behaviours for ourselves? Are we willing to step out of our comfort zone and take some risks? This workshop will provide some of the techniques for individuals to understand their own desire to embrace change in their own natural behaviours, and how they can inspire others into accepting the softer and more “fluffy” side of agile.
