About this Workshop

Becoming agile is a journey, and it can be a difficult one. The Agile Self-Assessment Game is there for you to see how agile you are – and smoothly and successfully travel your agile journey.

Assuming that you know why you want to become agile (a first but crucial step), you start looking for ways of getting there. Questions like "what do you want to keep from your current way of working?" and "what would you like to change?" will come up at the start. The next questions that usually pop up are "how are we doing?" and "what can we do to improve?".

Come play the Agile Self-Assessment Game in teams to discover how agile you are – and what you can do to increase your agility.

Players will receive a link to download the card game so that they can play it in their own organisations (CC BY-NC-ND 3.0 License).

I designed this game based on my experience with coaching teams, and my background in organisational development and assessments.
