Agile’s most powerful strategy for organizing people and creating real cultural change remains mostly a secret, almost entirely unknown in the business world. This key technique for unleashing agility is not even well understood within the agile community, and the vocabulary word describing it has recently been removed from one of the most popular agile frameworks. It is time we reclaim the word and fully understand its power. Agile’s forgotten secret is Ceremony. Ceremony is the best tool we’ve ever seen to increase human performance, grow productivity, strengthen relationships, and improve your bottom line. Almost all work, including computer programming, is greatly improved using ceremony. Yes, programming itself is best done as Ceremony! Ceremony is so much more than Standup meetings. Ceremony is the ultimate human hack. In this presentation rediscover ceremony, the key to agile success. For over two thousand years, ceremony has demonstrated its power to transform our world. It is an intrinsic tool in religions, militaries, schools, and governments. Executives, entrepreneurs, and front-line managers miss a huge opportunity when they cannot formally describe what ceremony is, how it works, or how it may be leveraged in their organizations. In this presentation you will learn all three. Every agilist should understand the power of ceremony.
