Agile development teams are like emergency response teams - they need to be ready to act quickly to new challenges and changing competition.
At the "Deep Agile 2010: Empowering Teams with Agile Games" seminar, you will experience techniques that teach agile teams how to work together effectively and adapt to changing conditions.
I say "experience" because, rather than hearing lectures, you will be learning actively through observation and situational experiences, led by professional coaches and engaged facilitators.
The seminar includes structured sessions along three tracks: games to learn, games to change, and games to do work. You can move between tracks to select the blend of exercises that best suits your needs. Sessions range from introductory Agile concepts, to the theory of constraints (via the "bottleneck" game), to innovative topics such as using the art of improvisation to facilitate teamwork and exploring emergent design.
The second day will feature an "Open Space" meeting session, in which participants decide the agenda, then meet in breakout groups to explore the topics of greatest interest and share ideas for solutions. Open Space sessions are exceptionally stimulating and productive, because the discussions focus on the questions, problems and successes of you and your peers.

Of course the only way to gain all these advantages is to attend "Deep Agile 2010: Empowering Teams with Agile Games" in Cambridge, MA on May 15-16, so register today!
