Agile In An Imperfect World
Many people implementing or improving Agile in their company are doing so in less than ideal environments. You have to work with what the dice give you. There are factors of the people, the organization, and the environment that are harder to change than others. The focus of this conference is dealing with these impediments, whether that means working around them or working with others to change them. Games can be used to simulate the effects of changing these factors to decide which to focus on, or as a means of convincing others to focus on them. Games can be used to analyze processes, system models, and organizational structures in a way that both scales down and exposes them, removing irrelevant and uncomfortable factors. It allows you to talk in generalities instead of about specific people or details.

Do you have a training budget? Do you control the purse strings, or have influence who does?
You have sent your teams to Agile seminars and technical classes before. There's learning, but it's not exciting, and the lessons learned don't always stick.
You hire Agile coaches to help improve your teams' Agile, Kanban, or Lean skills. There's learning, but it's not always remembered, or worse yet, put to good use after the coaches leave.
Why not try something different?
