Learn new exercises for your agile retrospectives, find out how to create a safe environment, and improve your facilitation skills in the workshop Valuable Agile Retrospectives for Teams at DevOpsCon Singapore, November 24-25, 2021.

Learning by practicing and experiencing

Doing it yourself and reflecting is the way people learn new practices and develop skills in my workshops. They work in teams to try out things and experiment with practices to learn how agile can really look and feel. I coach people, answer questions, share my experience, and provide lots of ideas. They learn from me, and also from each other.

I teach from personal experience: What I teach in my workshops are things that I’ve done myself, or that I feel able to do and make enough sense to me to experiment with. My strength is that I teach what I do and do what I teach, it’s who I am. I believe bringing my whole self to workshops makes a difference.

I use many exercises, games, and real-life cases in my workshops. Examples are the retrospectives toolbox, the Impediment Game, and the Agile Self-assessment Game.
