The Soup Stone - Catalyst to Agile Adoption


At the Agile Dev Practices conference on March 4. - 7. 2012 in Berlin, Germany I present a workshop called "The Soup Stone - Catalyst to Agile Change".

Here I have published:
  • An abstract of that session
  • The presentation on SlideShare
  • Aditional resources


It is on debate how many Agile implementations fail, but quite a few do. What is holding organizations back? Is it fear or something else? How can I help my organization?

In this session we interactively investigated what motivates people to change their behavior, as this is the basis for organizational change. What can drive management  and team members to become more Agile. And then there was the fairytale of the Soup Stone.


The objective of this session was to make participants more aware of the organizational environment they are in. They learned about the change model of the Elephlant and its Rider (from the book Switch) in a fun way. They used this model to inspire more effective ways of introducing new Agile practices.
