Edward De Bono's Creative Thinking meets with Agile
Slide Deck used in the conference: http://www.slideshare.net/RathinaKumar2/edward-de-bono-agile
Building 'happy' teams is one of the cherished goals for Agile Coaches and Scrum Masters. In my coaching experience, all the high-performance agile teams have joy and happiness as the core to their performance.
I have taken Edward De Bono as my support and his work on creative thinking as my guide for this purpose. Edward De Bono's crative thinking patterns include several aspects like curiosity, provocation, synergy, fun, hypotheis etc. Edward De Bono's work can be applied in every field where we look for creative outcomes.
These creative thinking patterns can be adopted by agile coaches/scrum masters to improve their effectiveness in building high-performance teams.
This session has exercises that are derived from Edward De Bono's work on creative thinking patterns. These exercises can be used by agile coaches/scrum masters with appropriate modifications in their real world contexts.
Join me in building "happy" teams with the help of Edward De Bono.
