Improv and the Agile Team

While at Agile Coach Camp Canada in Toronto last month, I had the priviledge of learning about how Improv can help the team’s Agility from Todd Charron (Twitter: @toddcharron  Web: http://www.planningforfailure.com).

This was the first time that I made the connection between Agile and Improv… and it was one of those ah-ha moments for me.

Good team mates learn when it’s time to speak and when it’s time to let someone else speak. They learn to explore ideas “thrown at them” from their fellow team mates and seek to build on those ideas. Good team mates understand and appreciate the connection that they have with each other. They make room for vulnerability. They trust and support each other.

They are fearless when they are together.
