    Case Study

    Current discussions about implementing Agile at home tend to focus on the physical attributes. We all know, at least we SHOULD know, that Agile is so much more than walls and ceremonies.

    My talk will demonstrate concrete examples of how my family, and very likely yours, are applying the Agile mindset in our everyday lives. The intent is to help you recognise that ideas and solutions can come from a variety of sources. This understanding will allow us all to think outside the box and incorporate options from outside our workplace. Hopefully it will also bring us to an understanding that Agile is not just a methodology, but a way of thinking that celebrates success and failures.

    This talk will be humorous (hopefully), with lots of family photos and anecdotes of daily life, at home and at work.
