This talk will be how we do learn and apply basic agile principles @home. Being a busy mum of two, how do I get ideas from my lil ones which I apply in office being an Iteration Manager.

Agile is nothing new to be afraid/fear of and it has always been with us since ages. It’s just that now there is a well-defined framework for us to embrace. There are lots of points that I can correlate with what my lil one does or what I do @home, which in turn are applicable in the form of Agile principles to be applied @work. On the other hand, whatever new I do learn in Agile world if applied @home gives me tremendous value.

Hence eventually , in Agile transformation journey if we have a correlation to what we does every day will help us to smoothly embark on our Agile journey and we won’t be afraid of a new Change
