Agile Self-assessment Game - XP Days Benelux 2016 - Ben Linders


Published on

Becoming agile is a journey, which can be difficult to travel. Assuming that you know why you want to become agile (a first but crucial step) you start looking for ways how to get there. Questions like "what do you want to keep from your current way of working" and "what would you like to change" will come up. Then the next question is "what are ways to do this".

There isn't a silver bullet or standard route to become agile, you have to find your own way. A fixed route description won't help you. You need an "agile map" that inspires you with ideas and suggestions on where to go on your journey. The Agile Self-Assessment game is here for you to travel your agile journey.

Come play the Agile Self-Assessment game in teams to discover how agile you are and what you can do to increase your agility.

Players will receive a link to download the card game so that they can play it in their own organization (CC BY-NC-ND 3.0 License).
