What was your best day as an Agile consultant?

The Game Changer

I’ve had many great experiences as an Agile Consultant, so writing about my ‘best day’ isn’t so easy.  It’s a tough one to pinpoint!

But if I think about it, one time really stands out above the rest, and it happened about seven years after the engagement.🕰️

I know that’s quite a long time ago, but that emphasises how this event has stuck with me throughout my years in Agile.  🔥

So, let me go ahead and share one of my most memorable moments as an Agile Consultant, which may sound like an average day at the office, but it turned out to be anything but. 💭

A Step Back in Time

So, picture this: I’m in Utah, a pretty picturesque landscape as the backdrop for our intense Scrum sessions.

There I was, deep in training and workshops with a spirited team of Java developers.  Despite my lack of Java expertise, I didn’t know anything about Java, but I was ready for the challenge, ready to make a difference. 💥

We pushed the boundaries of what we knew, diving headfirst into Scrum, Agile, user story workshops, and even engineering practices workshops.  In a spirited exchange of ideas, we even tackled a TDD explanation and lesson.

You can imagine the room was alive with the sound of keyboards and minds at work.  I think that this alone is a testament to the power of agile methodologies.

An Email Changed Everything

Now, I know you may be thinking that my memory of that day working in Utah sounds like just another day in the life of an Agile consultant.  But here’s where it gets interesting.  Seven years later, after the engagement with the Java development team, I got an email from one of the workshop participants out of the blue!

Receiving that email truly made my day. 📧 

This team member reached out to share the game-changing impact our time together had on him, his team, and their entire organisation.  He wrote to let me know what a game-changer that experience was.  It wasn’t just a one-off for him – the whole team and organisation had been impacted.💥

First APS Class

I thought a run-of-the-mill five to six-day on-site Scrum was a catalyst for massive change within that organisation. 🙌

During that engagement, we did Scrum and Agile workshops, worked on user stories, and even corrected my code on the projector, nonetheless! 😅

Even years later, people from that Scrum speak of it as a turning point.  Some have even invited me into their new companies to recreate that magic.

But funnily enough, that first experience, the first APS class I ever taught, remains unmatched in my memory.🏆

But the true magic was seeing the long-term ripple effects of that short engagement. 🚀
