Title: School's out and Agile's in: A Lesson in teaching and utilizing Agile principles
When I decided to take the leap into the IT world, people thought I was crazy. The most tech experience I had ever had was connecting my ChromeBook to the wireless projector in my classroom. But what people didn’t know is that I had been studying Agile and Scrum, and the parallels between being a teacher and a Scrum Master were made abundantly clear to me. After 15 years of telling high school and middle school students to reach for their goals and invest in their future, it was time for me to follow my own advice. Come join us and discuss the parallels between creating a classroom culture of learning, collaboration, and growth and how to apply these principles to your Agile organization.
