Agile for Families

I’m taking a Project Management course for my library degree. We’ve learned about the agile project management approach called “scrum,” which is featured in the video above. Scrum is a very quick and dirty way of fostering accountability and addressing change within a group.

On Saturday I was surprised to hear about this Ted Talk where Bruce Feiler describes how by using scrum through short family meetings, empowering children and sharing family stories (the latter isn’t scrum) can make families healthier.
