Since presenting the first Full Metal Agile in 2018, a couple of more cartoons have been added to the Agile Drill Sergeant canon - so I'll be going behind the scenes and telling the stories that inspired those new strips!
"The Agile Drill Sergeant webcomic originally started out as a challenge to actually finish 12 cartoon strips - as my success rate before that had been zero. I applied agile thinking to getting minimal viable comics finished and - lo and behold - it has since become a hobby resulting in nearly 100 comics. And they're all about my experiences (and those of my friends) with Agile!
In my presentation I'll talk about what inspired several of the cartoons and the learnings that I took away from the experiences. They cover my work as a coach and scrum master, team dynamics and managerial hubris. So there should be something for everyone!"
Learning objectives: For all the agile coaches, scrum masters and teams that have laughed and cried about their agile journey - you're not alone! Hopefully as you recognise similar situations and experiences, you'll leave with a smile on your face ;-)
