schedule Sep 29th 11:00 AM - 11:30 AM place Z308 people 6 Interested

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.

  • Brief introduction of myself
  • An elaboration of why I am passionate about this topic, and what I believe the audience will gain from this presentation
  • Slideshow presentation
  • Q&A

Learning Outcome

This presentation will allow the audience understand a different way of thinking about how Agile challenges can be overcome.

Target Audience

Anyone practicing Agile, or is keen on how Agile works, and looking for innovative ideas to solve common problems


A basic understanding of Agile is desirable, though not mandatory. The talk will introduce the concepts in a manner that should allow a non-practitioner to follow. The audience should be aware that this is not a deep-dive into the technicalities of Agile, merely an alternative way to approach to ideally achieve a common outcome.

    Case Study

    This is a workshop style presentation where we will introduce a number of collaboration techniques, then break into groups who will use the different techniques to examine the idea of collaboration. Finally, the groups will report back to the larger group about what they learned about collaboration techniques from each other and from the actual experience of employing the technique.
