      Hi!

      Sorry for delayed response. If Agile coaches and scrum masters are well versed with this topic of Emotional Intelligence, they can use this knowledge to train teams and indusial who may face challenges during Agile transformation.   

      I come across this research paper http://pjitm.com/Doc/issu%20July%20-%20Dec%202013/Paper%203.pdf which concludes, those who has better understanding of EI in SW industry makes a positive impact over the ones who does not have better understanding of EI.

    Hi Hemant,

    The session outline seems pretty intense, will it be possible to complete all of it in 45 minutes? If not then can you maximize the points that are not to be covered please? Also, it would be nice if you can upload a video of your talk delivered elsewhere (or a summary video by yourself) and reduce the verbosity of your slides.

      There are situations that agile coach and scrum master face challenges after a certain number of iterations in maintaining team’s enthusiasm adhering to core values and principals of agile and creativity. Team and stakeholders start feeling a kind of monotony and cyclic repetition of activities that largely impacts on Self organization and Cross functionality.

      Specific to agile, Design Thinking so far is seen as a way of taking care of WHAT part by means of better and precisely building product backlog in early phase of the project. However it is leant that Design thinking can be practiced successfully in the rest of agile life cycle to address said issues.

      Application of systematic and wisely selected Design Thinking techniques or methods through out the agile project life cycle significantly enhances the purpose and help us in keeping the team’s pace, interest and stick to agile manifesto. Hence Design ‘Agile’ Thinking.
