Abstract/Description

Agile values and practices transformed the workplace, but Agile at home? You bet! Effective agile techniques and behaviors help families and teams improve while dealing with the inevitable change of daily life. In this session we'll explore everyday life through an agile lens!

This session explores topics like weekly family meetings, collective team accountability, and even peer review for chores. Get pointers for parents, leaders, team members, and managers learning to accommodate unique personalities.

For over 8 years, the Starr family has been using techniques borrowed from agile teams to foster creativity, collective ownership, and self-organization. The Starr’s practices have been covered in an IEEE paper, a TED Talk on the subject, and in the book “Secrets of Happy Families”.
