  • Who are you?
    We are a group of well experienced Agile consultants that are working in an Agile comapany (Ajimeh) that helps companies to fulfil its business potential. One of the essence of Ajimeh is to help people with tools and technique beyond Agile and Agile-In-The-Family is one of the frameworks that we are offering. The unique of this framework is that it aims for families and not for customers. This framework works well because of the following: - It is a well mix of frameworks combined into one that is focused on a family. - A family is basically a team with higher level of bonding - Nowadays everybody at their homes, so working in Agile-In-The-Family is a natural way for those who are not only understand the advantages of Agile but also have the passion for Agile
  • Do I have to know Agile and specifically Scrum or Kanban, in order to implement Agile-In-The-Family?"
    No, you do not to know it beforehand, however, while taking the intro session, you will gain al the essential knowledge of Agile, Scrum and Kanban specifically
  • I am a single parent. Does it fit?
    Of course! The Agile-In-The-Family was developed to all types of families regardless the number of parents, their genders and the number of kids that they have
  • What do I need to do in order to become a facilitaor?
    Take all the intro sessions and pass an interview session with a trainer
  • What do I need to do in order to become a coach?
    In order to be a coach, you need to be a facilitator and teach all intro sessions with high feedback score
  • What do I need to do in order to become a trainer?
    in order to become a trainer, you need to be an active coach for one year
  • I already know Scrum, isn't it simply running it in the family?"
    While Scrum is a very effective technique, it does not fit to all families and furthermore, even if it fit, we did several adjustments from software development to family. For example, the product owner is not a sole person, the target of the family is not high business value and so on.
  • What are the ages of the kids that fits Agile-In-The-Family?
    Kids can be part of it from the very early age when they are starting to interact with others.
  • Is there a Daily meeting in this framework?
    Of course! Depends on the family, we see families that are doing Daily in the mornings and others in the evenings. We answer the same three questions but we adjust them to the age of the kids. In addition, we have additional suggested formats, such as answering the same questions to another kid, answering the same three questions to a task (e.g. sweeping the living room)
  • What is the suggested length of a Sprint?
    The assumption that each family is using sprints is similar to the assumption that each company is using Scrum :-) WHEN a family is using sprints, we suggest that the length of the sprint will be either one day or one week (again, similar to companies in the hi-tech industry, the lenght of the Sprint is determined ad-hoc for each company)
  • How do you do a retrospective?
    The same way we are doing it in Scrum :-) We are focusing on the process and the gap between the expected results and the actual results. We also focus on creating reasnable challenging action items for each family member as well as for the entire family
  • Do you have a kanban board?
    Yes, this is the main tool for transparency and visibilty. As opposed to Hi-Tech where we have a tool for it (e.g. Jira, TFS, VersionOne, etc.), here we are using physical board with sticky notes. As in Scrum and kanban, we highly suggest to put it on the "high way", i.e. in the kitchen or living room.
