XPToronto: Following Your Fear: What Improv Can Teach Agile

Is there something you’ve always wanted to do with your life, but haven’t. What’s holding you back? What about your teams?

Fear often holds us back from achieving the success we’ve always wanted, both personally and professionally. Improvisors deal with fear all the time. No script, no set, no props, no idea what’s going to happen next.

We’ll examine the core of Improv and the core of Agile to see the similarities they share and how they both work to combat fear.

I’ll take you through some of my stories working with Agile teams, what they’ve been afraid of and how we handled it. I’ll also share my personal story of following my own fear.

We’ll get on our feet and learn some of the techniques Improvisors use and get ourselves into some uncomfortable situations in order to find our edge.
