The Future of Work Scotland team are delighted to be hosting author of Improving Agile Teams, Paul Goddard.
As a keen improviser himself, Paul has been tested through these times on how to adapt and pivot during uncertainty. Paul will share some of his thoughts on how the improv principles and practices he teaches have helped both himself and the teams he coaches through the lockdown period - and maybe even have some fun with some short-form improv games for the online attendees!
What can our attendees expect to take away from the session?
● An understanding that improv is embracing change (not about being funny)
● More confidence around being creative
● Techniques to enhance collaboration
● Some easy online games to play with agile teams
