Improvisation. The mere mention of the word makes many people quake with fear at the prospect of chaos and uncertainty. The fact is, though, human beings are improvising almost every minute of their lives—it is more natural, and more filled with possibility, than you might imagine.
On stage, improvisational actors use simple rules, collaborative principles, and game constraints to build unscripted yet intriguing storylines. This course explores how those same simple rules and principles can help agile teams collaborate more effectively and how purposefully working within constraints can unlock creativity.
In this course, you will learn:
The parallels between improvisational theatre and agile development
How to engage more with your team members
Resilience from accepting failure and being positive
How to collaborate through co-creation with others
Creative problem solving techniques and coaching styles
These objectives will be met through a mixture of improv games that attendees will play, and structured debriefs with other attendees and the trainer. Attendees will experience activities that will build confidence, release creativity and raise communication skills.
