This book explores how those same simple rules and principles can help agile teams collaborate more effectively and how purposefully working within constraints can unlock creativity.

Inside, you ll find over 50 techniques and improv games tailored for agile teams, complete with step-by-step instructions.

“…as an agile practitioner I read an awful lot of books relating to agile and coaching, and I must say Improv-ing Agile Teams is one of the best I’ve read this year…” – Amazon Review
