There seem to be some interesting Design Patterns in common between Alinsky-style community organizing and Scrum. In this talk, I explore what makes each unique, and what they share in common. In particular, I suggest that looking at Design Patterns might help practitioners in both spheres, as well as traditional project managers, build more effective teams.
The original talk was given to a PMI Roundtable. From the feedback to the talk, I was reminded that not even Project Managers necessarily know much about Agile or Scrum. For a broader audience of organizers, how much more so. I have therefore added several slides about Agile in general, and Scrum as a popular Agile methodology. Hopefully, I'll get to test them out at future talks and/or they'll be useful to people who find these slides on SlideShare.
