We were fortunate to be accepted to present our Visual Thinking (Sketching outside the Box) workshop at Agile2017 this year in Orlando, Florida. All I can say is “Wow”! What an amazing experience meeting awesome, like-minded people from around the world. I did behave a bit like a groupie, and yes, possibly asked for some autographs…
I have compiled a little booklet of all of the sketchnotes that I did from the conference – some light reading until next year (and for those who may not have been able to attend).
Some highlights from Agile2017 below (all sketches are included in link above)…
Thank you Agile Alliance and all those who were involved in organising, and took the time to attend.
Check out #Agile2017 and #Agile17 to view the conversations from the conference. I was not the only sketchnoter at the conference, please check out the awesome sketches from the other visual thinkers there:
I was fortunate to be selected as a speaker. My colleague, Angie Doyle, and I facilitated a workshop on Visual Thinking for Agile Teams which was extremely well received – it’s exciting to see the interest and enthusiasm that people have for thinking visually! You can follow this link to view our “slides” from the workshop – all were created using flip charts.
I also used this opportunity to sketchnote the presentations and workshops I attended, there were lots of interesting topics. It’s always uplifting to get together with other Agile Practitioners and talk about what’s going on in the industry.
There was a lot of conversation and other sketchnoters (some new ones after the Visual Thinking workshop) who also posted sketches during the conference, to have a look at these you can check out the #SGZA and #SGZA2016 tags on Twitter.
I found it extremely interesting and inspiring. It incorporated ideas from Agile, Scrum, New Product Development, Lean Manufacturing, to name a few and was synthesized into a compelling argument for a revolution in the way that we currently approach management.
I would really recommend this book. Here are my notes for the 7 key principles of Radical Management.
