10:45 AM Sunday Room: 4201Impediments prevent you and your team from making progress or doing your best work. We will use a simple three step system to identify, analyze, and remove impediments so that your team can deliver maximum value. We will use games and simulations to explore the different types of impediments that arise for real development teams, and then apply the 3 step model overcome those impediments. Bring your impediments and be prepared to have fun with them!
3:30 PM Saturday Room: 4201Agile is a holistic approach to software development and the best way to learn about agile is to experience it. Over the course of this short workshop, we will engage the power of simulations and learning games to evoke and explore various aspects of the agile experience. Warning!

Areas we will explore will include:
<li> * Iterative vs. traditional project lifecycle
<li> * Communication on a self-organizing agile team
