Agile is an approach that makes work more fulfilling and more productive and Scrum is the most popular flavor of Agile.

Now individuals and organizations across all industries are beginning to adopt Agile mindsets and the results are astonishing.

In this session, you will learn more about what Agile and Scrum are, how they can make you happier and more productive at home and at work, why happiness may be the leading indicator of productivity and how to get started on your Agile journey. The session is a combination of class discussion and fun exercises that allow you to experience the process and benefits first hand.
