This is a group for anyone interested in agile software development in the Leicester area, where we plan to regularly meet up, share knowledge, experiences and have fun while doing it!
The aim is to hold an event on the 2nd Thursday of each month, which will be in the form of presentations/workshops from industry professionals working within agile software development to share knowledge, promote best practice and network with others within the industry.
If you have any topics in particular you are interested in, or you'd like to speak or know someone that might please get in touch - we are always open to feedback!
Practising Mindfulness in an Agile Environment: A journey of two experiments leading to #Productivity and #Focus
Mindfulness is a natural capacity present in all of us to some extent and involves paying purposeful attention to our daily experiences. When mindfulness becomes a shared social practice in an organisation, and permeates routines, processes and practices between people and across teams, then the organisation as a whole becomes more resilient and performs more sustainably.
In this talk, Muhammad will take the audience through the journey of #two #experiments he conducted in a corporate environment by introducing mindfulness practices. He shares his inspiration behind the experiment, how I devised it and most importantly, the results of the experiment on #productivity and #focus.
Muhammad is an Agile Coach with international experience coaching multicultural, diverse teams and organisations towards agility. He is also a recognised international speaker and facilitator invited at various agile gatherings and user groups sharing his experiments, learnings and most importantly making a difference to those he serves.
