Creative Colour PencilsSorry for falling off the radar for so long. I’m doing some coaching work in Toronto and find myself working late enough most nights that I don’t have the energy to write when I’m done. On Dec 14, I’m giving presentation at XPToronto (7pm). See the site: a bit closer to the date for location details (Ryerson).


Creativity can manifest in several ways including creation of something new, refinement of something that exists and problem solving. How do we support, enable and enhance the creative abilities of Agile teams? There are many ways to shape the work environment for greater creativity. We will present a summary of the literature that describes how creativity can be enhanced by providing a safe, nurturing environment, enhancing group interactions, pacing activities that utilize different sensory modes and trusting in the power of subconscious integration.

This session was previously presented at Agile 2010.

What People Say

“Kelly is an Agile heavy-weight. He came in to assess my multi-million $ Agile development program which wasn’t delivering the right throughput. He interviewed most of the team and made some key recommendations that, when implemented, showed immediate results. I couldn’t ask for more than that except he’s a really nice guy as well.”
