XP Days Benelux 2016
November 23, 2016 - November 25, 2016
The XP Days program committee has accepted my workshop “Agile Self-Assessment Game” for the XP Days Benelux 2016 conference. How cool is that!
Becoming agile is a journey, which can be difficult to travel. Assuming that you know why you want to become agile (a first but crucial step) you start looking for ways how to get there. Questions like “what do you want to keep from your current way of working” and “what would you like to change” will come up. Then the next question is “what are ways to this”.
There isn’t a silver bullet or standard route to become agile, you have to find your own way. A fixed route description won’t help you. You need an “agile map” that inspires you with ideas and suggestions on where to go to support your journey. The Agile Self-Assessment game is here for you to travel your agile journey.
Come play the Agile Self-Assessment game in teams at XP Days Benelux 2016 to discover how agile you are and what you can do to increase your agility.
Players will receive a link to download the card game so that they can play it in their own organization (CC BY-NC-ND 3.0 License).
From the XP Days website:
XP Days Benelux is an international conference where we learn to bring software to life and grow mature systems that support business needs.
It provides an excellent environment for exchanging ideas, hands-on exercises and extreme experiences.
The conference is organized by the Dutch and Belgian agile community and the location alternates between Belgium and The Netherlands.
XP Days Benelux is the only conference that I know that allows presenters to continuously improve the details of their proposals. For instance when they develop new insights for their talks or workshop, or based on feedback that they get from other participants and the organizers. In return they ask to help other participants improve their session. The conference uses a Perfection Game exercise for giving constructive and useful feedback.
