The most important part of Agile Software Development is the Agile Manifesto. Whenever I start working with a new team, I always start with the Agile 4 values and 12 principles from the Agile Manifesto.
Agile Manifesto Card Activity
I came across a great activity created by Samantha Laing and Karen Greaves of Growing Agile that I’ve used often in physical workshops and training. It’s really fun! It’s a way for teams to engage with the Agile Manifesto content collaboratively. See the Growing Agile – Agile Manifesto activity here for more detailed facilitator instructions.
One challenge at the moment with remote work is building engaging, virtual activities to use with teams. It can take a lot of time to build these activities. I’ve created a remote version of the Agile Values Card Activity (Google Slides| PowerPoint) that I would like to share.
Note: Running this activity remotely
You can access the activity on Google Slides and download a copy. You will need to upload this into your own Google Drive or another online collaboration tool. Even PowerPoint Online works well – as long as all participants can access and edit the document at the same time.
Agile Values Poster
A great takeaway for this activity is a completed poster with the Agile Values. You can download the completed Agile Values poster here.
Feel free to contact me for any feedback or improvements to this activity.
I hope this is useful in your remote work!
