Agile approaches emerge through experimentation and learning in specific contexts. People learn in different ways and you can't hope to teach without understanding that. Members of agile teams all have a role to play in helping a team's agile approach emerge.

Editor's Notes

  • Blended learning
  • Emergence is the key characteristic of complex systems: simple entities self-organise to form something more complex.

    “As training converges with bottom-up self-organising systems […] and the power of individuals, it morphs into emergent learning.”

    Characteristics of emergent learning are: discovery instead of curriculum, just in time instead of just in case, and learning instead of training
  • Engineering practices lived alongside Scrum, indeed they supported each other
  • Engineering practices lived alongside Scrum, indeed they supported each other
  • Don’t prescribe answers. Teach ways to generate emergent learning.

  • We changed context, and it completely changed how we interacted. I learned more about the individuals and interactions in that class in that ten minute experiment, than I had in the previous few months. Their feedback afterwards was vocal and enthusiastic. It was energising for everyone. I also heard from a character in the class that had previously never really spoken. Because he didn’t speak English well, I always assumed he was a quiet character. Well, in this context, for once he responded to me. He said he would jump rather than run through the fire, so I asked him, “aren’t you scared you’ll break your leg?” Without missing a beat, he replied: ‘no. I’d fly away.”
