Is there symmetry between Agile and Football? You would think the answer is no. Software development methods vs. one of the more physical sports. Surely there can't be similarities. Nor can agile folks learn much from this grimy sport.

Well, just like Scrum has its naming roots in the esteemed sport of Rugby, perhaps there is something to it. Join Bob Galen and Josh Anderson as they explore American Football and look for similarities, lessons, metaphors, and tactics that align and amplify our agile team practices.

We'll explore things like: making game time adjustments, the importance of tempo, coaching, practice, importance of goals, and game films driving continuous improvement as some of our topics. Come join us and you'll never look at a football game quite the same way again.
