Agile Principles Series: "Self-Organizin­g Teams"

Join us May 15th as we continue our year-long series on the Agile Manifesto principles by highlighting "The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams." Just how do you break down the silos and turn a collection of individuals into a self-organizing team? In this meetup, you will have a chance to experience team-building exercises that have been adapted to illustrate Agile principles. The exercises we do will be available for all attendees to take home and try with their own teams.

    David Babicz has a nice, relaxed presentation style which is well-suited to a meetup of this kind. I particularly liked the exercises that required us to stand up and move about: physical motion often facilitates clarity of thought. The audience were engaged throughout and the conversation was informative and vibrant.

    Nice group discussion. Group knot exercise was instructional. Didn't get much out of the survival item ranking exercise.

    Good discussion on what they are, How they operate.

    Both exercises excellent in uncovering the power of self-organizing team from two different angles

    Would have liked to see keys as to how to shift cultures where "command and control" tends to dominate so they are more receptive to "self-organizing teams"

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
