I believe in "Being Agile not Doing Agile"
Agility is an attribute of Being, not a process of Doing

This is what my experience has taught me - “Lead by example, Train by experience”
I observed that, as adults, we learn more by experience than listening to, or reading about something. So, the past few years, I have spent time designing activities/games to help my teams get experiencial learning of some of the concepts

Knowledge of Project planning, Execution and Governance for Agile Teams
Used innovation games at various phases of the project
Conducted Role based focused group training
Have helped teams seamlessly transform from non-agile/pseudo-agile to being Agile
Worked with Senior and Executive management as part of Agile Transformation
