AGILE COACHING: CREATING VALUE by helping PEOPLE have GREAT LIVES -

My Tribute to Play4Agile

The following is my tribute to Play4Agile published prior to the 2017 event:

For some the dark and stormy winter makes it hard to see the light
For others, it’s a time to cuddle in front of the fireplace at night
But for all of us there’s a special place, that makes us all unite
A place where we all become kids again to feed our playful appetite
We come from near and far to celebrate the game of life
With blue haired dragon ladies and maybe a Conference Wife?!?
The waiting list will probably also be ridiculously long this year
But I hope and pray for Werewolves, Cards Agains Humanity and Kanban Beer
I almost cannot wait for us to be together again
It’s time for Play4Agile! – will I see you then?

  • Do you tend to “cut corners” to make the deadline? (minimize testing, documentation or other parts of the process)
  • Do you feel stressed when getting close to the end of a Sprint – and drained in the beginning of one? Continue reading
