At Table XI playing with LEGO is nothing new. In fact, many of us spent the better part of our childhood honing our LEGO craft. As adults our tendency to tinker has led us to build with code, not plastic, but there’s still something satisfying in the familiar click associated with creating something from nothing.
During this past month’s Chicago Ideas Week, we went back to the building blocks to teach Agile methodology—literally. We hosted 40 people for “Learn Agile with LEGO” at our office, where teams built “products” with LEGO bricks using the Agile process, and got to relive some childhood fun along the way.
