Whether you are a professional trainer or trying to bring agility to your organization or team, you no doubt have encountered the difficulty in conveying agile values and principles. Learning practices and techniques is easy in comparison; You learn by doing. But how do you teach a philosophy or mindset? How do you 'do' a value?
Through trial and error, through hundreds of classes, through training thousands of agile practitioners, we have put together a set of best practices (and not-so-best practices) for delivering powerful agile learning experiences. Participants in this session will walk away with a toolkit they can put to use the next day. The toolkit will include scenario simulations, learning games, discussion generators, reenforcement exercises, student patterns, common pitfalls, and other activities to help you get out of the way and let the learning happen.
