As people become more familiar with agility, we're seeing it in many different places and industries that is outside the software realm. I have had the pleasure of working with high school teachers to help them understand how agility can benefit the way their students complete class projects. 2015 was the first time that I was able to step into a classroom and work with the teacher and students to use Scrum, Kanban, and Lean techniques to deliver their team biology projects.
Teachers can utilize agility in the classroom to better organize how teams work and deliver. Students get the benefit of learning a technique that is taking over how we work and delivering higher quality team projects.
All in all, the benefits include Collaboration, Communication, and Transparency which are pieces that are currently missing from the way high school students operate today. Below is my presentation I gave at the Scrum Gathering in Shanghai 2015 on what it looked and felt like to work with a class of high schoolers in Chicago as they learned and implemented this new way of delivering school projects.
