Intro to agile for government

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Pre-Summit workshops have limited space and tickets are purchased separately from the main conference. Please see the Summit Workshops page to learn more and get your ticket.

This workshop is for anyone who wants to know more about Agile development techniques and learn fun and innovative ways to introduce them back into your organizations.  Be prepared for a fast-paced workshop.  We will first teach you some of the basic concepts behind all Agile methods such as Agile Ceremonies, Requirements vs Stories, and Agile Roles.  We will then illustrate those concepts using experiential learning methods (games!).  You will not only play a lot of games, we will also teach you how to run these games yourself and debrief them.  Our goal is to teach you Agile techniques that you can bring back and try right away.  No change orders necessary! Bring an open mind, your enthusiasm for the topic and a great sense of humor.

Anyone looking to introduce agile methodologies into their government agency.
