Agile MiniCon 2023 – Agile Basics

“Spotting Waste”

Wednesday, April 5 – 11 AM EST

Haste makes waste…and so does some other stuff! Are you skilled at spotting waste in your work?  We’re creating a game to help people see the waste that’s all around them–bring your stories! We will be unpacking experiences and processes to improve the ability to identify different types of waste. Click here to register.

Game On – Applied Learning with Agile Games

Come learn and share Agile games and exercises that can help to create Aha! moments for yourself, your teams, and those that lead them. We’ll bring our favorites, and we encourage you to bring your games to share too. This is a great space to experiment with games in development with a friendly audience! We may even create something new together to unlock practice, process, and mindset. Click now to register.

Agile Alliance – Game On – Players

Rules and Principles for Game On

We encourage all members to participate, and while in the space we ask that everyone walk in the principles and rules below. Moderators are not always available, so if you encounter any issue or you need help, please contact us immediately.

Guiding Principles

  • The “Law of Mobility” — if at any time you find yourself in a situation where you are neither learning nor contributing, use your virtual feet, and continue to explore the space.
  • Whoever joins are the right people; Whatever happens, is the only thing that could have; Whenever it starts is the right time; When it’s over, it’s over; and Wherever it happens is the right place
  • Increase connection by being unmuted with your video on (headsets encouraged).
  • Help amplify learning and embrace fun!

Rules of the Gathering

Not following these rules may get you banned from future events.
