    Regis, Tov - games are indeed an interesting way to reinforce several of the key agile values and ideas. However, human knot is an oft-repeated game, and we have had some sessions on games in the past. So, while we feel it is a value to have some session on games, we need to make sure they can add value to the participants. I think 20 minutes is a bit too less because you can just about do one (or maybe two) games. So, assuming you have 45 minutes, what all games do you propose to conduct?

      Another game planned is one I created, iterative drawing. Where a team shares a drawing task using short iterations. It is a non competitive game which is excellent for showing the creativity, responsibility and learning , as well as the contribution of short iteration and shared work. 

      This game requires tables, and we will supply the rest

       

      About the human knot, we have three stages which demonstrate the new role of a manager as a facilitator and enabler, and demonstrate what a manager can bring to a self managed team.

       

      Another variation is blindfolding half the participants...

       

      This game has endless implications, and old players r welcome the retro is always fascinating, leading to discussions about personal safety, apathy and motivation, etc.

    Dov TSAL - Tao-inspired transformation

    45 Mins
    Talk
    Intermediate

    The book of Tao (400 BC) is about Agility,

    Lao-Tzu (老子), who presumably wrote the book, was the first documented Agile coach, advising Duke Xian, of the Zhou dynasty thru the Chinese empire transformation.

    In this session we will hear his story, dive into the principles of Taoism and understand the deep connection between Taoism and agility.

    We will connect to the idea that the whole world is one, discuss the power and risk of definitions, and examine the relevance of this to the agility of people, teams and organizations.

    We will also get a peek into "The Agile Tao", a fascinating book by Peter Merel that refactors the book of Tao into Agility.

    A journey of a thousand miles begins at the spot under one’s feet. join us as you are.

    Regis SCHNEIDER / Laetitia Thernier - #LostInTransformation: Back to basics

    90 Mins
    Workshop
    Intermediate

    You are accompanying transformations and you are having difficulties explaining your approach...
    You promote transformations and you don't understand what those coaches are doing...
    You have difficulties in engaging yourself in personal transformation...

    Anyway, you're lost in these transformations! Let's forget those very complicated models or frameworks...

    On the principle of Russian dolls where the same model is repeated at different levels, this workshop proposes to explore three key themes on three levels: Individual, team and organization. This will offer a new reading grid to the transformations you are involved in on a daily basis.
