The Lean-Agile Values & Principles Exercise

Share in:

In this exercise, you discuss examples of good team practices, and you match them with lean-agile values and principles. The activity can be done in a small group (between two and ten people.)

Total time: 15 to 30 minutes.

  1. Get a Lean-Agile Values & Principles sheet
    You can get this sheet from a facilitator, or you can download it when you sign up for the Shiftup Program.
  2. Randomly pick a person to tell a story
    Set a timer to 1 minute. Ask one person to share an example or short story of what he/she believes is a good team practice.
  3. Match the story with values and principles
    Set the timer again to 1 minute. Let each person in the group review the Lean-Agile Values & Principles sheet and silently mark those that match the shared example.
  4. Briefly discuss the outcomes
    Set the timer to 2 minutes. Compare the results across the entire group. Which of the values and principles did the group members pick most often? Which were chosen by only one person?

Repeat with another group member
Do the same steps again, several times, until the total time for the exercise has run out.
