PLAY 14 experience

May 9th, 2019 Posted by Agile, Blog, Events 0 thoughts on “PLAY 14 experience”

As part of my CONTINUOUS curricular, I had the pleasure to participate in the PLAY 14 – LUXEMBOURG 2019.
The objective of the PLAY 14 is to exchange, share and present ideas, exercises and knowledge  in a FUN, RESPECTFUL and PLAYFUL way.

PLAY 14 MANIFESTO & CODE OF CONDUCT: https://play14.org/values/

I took part in several activities:

REFACTORING FOR NON-IT PEOPLE

Very interesting exercise to popularize IT refactoring to Non-IT People and the need for it on a regular basis. We took the mind game as a good illustration.

 

AGILE COOKING SESSION

At the end of the 2nd day, we had the challenge to cook our own dinner. We were split into Agile Squads. Each squad had its Product Owner, Scrum Master, Cooks, Definition of Ready and Done and a defined “product” (Dish). Ex: Main Dish, Antipasti, Apéritif. It ran very well and one really felt the “Agile” necessity in cooking squads.

   

 

B-TALENT

Beatrix introduced her HR tool, map talent and potential mapping, through a serious game which aims to evaluate our different potentials referring to the multiple intelligence: Existential, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal, Visual-spatial, Musical-rhythmic, Verbal-linguistic, Logical-mathematical, Bodily-kinesthetic, Naturalistic

It was a very interesting exercise of self awareness and also god energizer.

 

     

HIGH DREAM – LOW DREAM AGILE ORGANIZATION

It was an exercise to picture a high and low dream agile organization. It took us time to understand what and how we should picture a high dream agile organization. We imagined and pictured it separately and then made the synthesis together. It was a very interesting exercise which necessitate to collaborate, share and act.

CIAO COMFORT ZONE

I presented Ciao Comfort Zone game that I found on the internet. The objective is to help and encourage people to get out of their comfort zone via daily, weekly, … challenges. Challenges are split in different themes: Social, New experiences, Gratitude, Confidence, Health and Caring. I got positive feedback from the game. This can be applied in a private and professional environment.

 

 

Thanks for this great moment !!!!!!

 

Pareto principle

April 19th, 2017 Posted by Agile, Blog, Tips 0 thoughts on “Pareto principle”

The Pareto principle (also known as the 80/20 rule, the law of the vital few, or the principle of factor sparsity) states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.

  • 80% of problems can be attributed to 20% of causes.
  • 80% of a company’s profits come from 20% of its customers
  • 80% of a company’s complaints come from 20% of its customers
  • 80% of a company’s profits come from 20% of the time its staff spent
  • 80% of a company’s revenue comes from 20% of its products

 

But also:

  • 80% of the product value come from the 20% of its features.

 

Think about it when you define your Minimal Viable Product (MVP).
