Last week, we facilitated a workshop with 100+ attendees from a large MedTech company, where they constructed several cities from Lego blocks and other materials such as masking tape, water bottles, and whatever else they could find. From these ordinary materials, we ended up with some extremely imaginative cityscapes – and of course it couldn’t have been achieved without adopting an Agile mindset. You’ve no doubt heard the saying ‘Rome wasn't built in a day’. So, how can it even be possible to build a city within 3 hours?
I'll soon be headed back home to Melbourne, Australia to the attend Scrum Australia conference - the biggest one yet in its five years of existence.

Does Asian Culture Eat Agile for Breakfast?
My colleagues Daryl, Lam and I were invited to talk at the DBS Agile conference in Singapore last week. It was really great to see how much emphasis the bank is putting on Agile as a key element of their BBW strategy (Best Bank in the World). I was also impressed by the awareness of top management about Agile matters and the sense of urgency they communicated to their team about embracing Agile.
