An agile talk about Agile (Avanade Inspire Conference 2013).
We held an agile talk/workshop on the subject of agile, the presentation doesn't contain much in terms of details, but it was used as a template for the presentation format.
We started out with 3 epics, the main subjects that had been requested prior to the conference. After detailing the backlog with the people in the room we did a game to show how self-organisation might work and how action leads to more result than thinking the solution through.
While the game was ongoing my co-presenter went through the questions to build a backlog.
After each 15 minutes the audience had the chance to say that they had received enough value for the epic and thus wanted to move to a new subject or that they wanted to know more.
After each 15 minutes the audience had the opportunity to add new questions and anecdotes to the backlog.
We concluded the talk after 3 scrums with a short review, summary and retrospective.
The format was very well received by the group.
