Playing the Agile Self-assessment Game at Agile Tour Lille 2017 - Ben Linders


Published on

There isn’t a standard route to become agile, you have to find your own way. Methods and frameworks don’t tell you how to increase your agility. The Agile Self-Assessment Game is an ‘agile map’ that inspires you with ideas and suggestions on where to go next on your agile journey. I played the Agile Self-Assessment Game in teams to help them discover how agile they are and what they can do to increase their agility.
