Building agile teams and an agile culture isn’t trendy, it is about turning ideas into reality while leveraging the emergence of the possible. Working with an agile mindset is a departure from traditional prescriptive project approaches. This type of change requires daily adherence to a different way of behaving and guidance from someone who understands how to implement sustainable change. Geof has been helping teams and companies transition to agile since before the word agile was popular.
Teams can suffer if they are not able to connect their behaviors with purpose. More than just establishing a common set of practices and vocabulary, the best training also allows for heuristic learning while doing, connecting activity with purpose. Teams work best when they operate from a shared approach based on a common understanding.
In 2010, Geof collaborated with a world leader in project management simulation powered learning, Fissure, to create a hands-on computer simulated agile team class. Structured in a team setting and focused on the most disruptive and challenging agile behavioral changes, the class collectively experiences a 5-sprint release of a software product.
