Heroes of Agility – Weds 2/09, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM EST

About this Event

In this session you will play a game that you can use to help teach Agile, Scrum, and Kanban. You will team up as a band of adventurers to seek your fortune and battle monsters for gold! The game is fast paced, with no turns. Anyone can do anything at any time. Explore the map, move your adventurer, or team up to battle Skeletons, Orcs, Giants, Dragons, and even the mighty Behemoth . Play is in 5 minute timeboxed rounds. In each round you attempt to do better as a team than before. To defeat a monster, you’ll need to use a variety of skills including wordplay, math, and simple drawing. The game illustrates most of the values and principles of the Agile Manifesto and the mechanics of Scrum and Kanban. A Mural template of the game will be provided for use with your teams. Connecting with a tablet or PC required for participation.

Jim Sywilok is an IT professional with over 25 years of progressive technical and business experience and holds Certifications in Enterprise Agility and Coaching Agile Transitions. During his career he had the rare opportunity to work on both sides of many organizations. He has seen firsthand the subtle disconnect within companies between their technical side and the business side which has often led to frustration and mistrust on both sides. He has seen instances where this also affected the relationship between the companies and their clients. 

As an Agile Practitioner of 15 years, he firmly believes that Agile Transformation is an idea whose time has truly come. Given today’s business pace and the speed of technological improvements, we really have no alternative but to adapt the way we work to account for these rapid changes in our environment or fall to the wayside.
