Re-imagining agile ceremonies – Lyndsay Prewer – Agile on the Beach Conference 2018

Lyndsay Prewer presents his Agile On The Beach 2018 session entitled “Reimagining Agile Ceremonies- Improving Engagement, Outcomes and Service Delivery”.

Teams that have been doing agile for a year or more can suffer from agile ceremony fatigue, and become disengaged in stand-ups, planning and retrospectives. This can negatively impact the outcomes of these ceremonies, which can ultimately lead to a reduction in the team’s effectiveness at delivering their service/product. Frequent changes to ceremony formats is one solution, but this can be unsettling to the team, as (despite the agile mantra of embracing change), humans on the whole struggle with change.

This session walks through various agile ceremony adaptations that Lyndsay has found keep things fresh and improve engagement, outcomes and ultimately service delivery. Lyndsay covers how to run lightweight yet long-lived planning sessions, interactive design/architecture walkthroughs and a retrospective based on banagrams!
