Angie Doyle (Linkedin | Twitter) and I were honoured to be accepted to Agile India 2019.

Exploring India

We did some exploring before the conference and were inspired by the culture, colours and people.

We went on an excellent tour to Mysore with Unventured. A trip to Bangalore wouldn’t be complete without a visit to markets and temples.

Agile 2018: T-minus 10… 9… 8… We have Lift-off!

Angie Doyle (Linkedin | Twitter) and I were selected to present at Agile2018 this year in San Diego. Our workshop focussed on effectively lifting off (or forming) high performance teams.

Why is team lift-off important?

We believe in the power of aligning teams upfront through conversation – ensuring that we are focussed on creating an intentional team culture from the very beginning. These techniques can also be used as stand alone techniques in retrospectives or shorter workshops.

How do you use this with your teams?

We encourage you to use these techniques with your team and have included all the material we have designed below.
