One of the 4 main points of the Agile Manifesto is individuals and interactions over processes and tools. But over time many organizations have begun implementing Agile “standards” and a prescriptive way of implementing Agile across their teams. And while some boundaries may be necessary, often this leads to the processes taking precedence over what is best for the team and stifles organizational learning.
This workshop will discuss how to use experimentation to break out of your Agile rut and spark a culture of curiosity and learning across your organization. Using real-life examples and opportunities for brainstorming you will see how you can apply the use of experiments to help safely solve problems while minimizing the risk of an experiment gone wrong. Yes, you can learn even from failed experiments. No beakers, test tubes or lab coats required.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Challenging people to evaluate prescriptive practices they may have in place
  • Generating ideas for how to help your teams learn what works best for them
  • Understanding how to structure experiments to be measurable and minimize risk
  • Learning from the experiences of a larger group
