Agile as a fundraising tool!

on January 10, 2010

Author: Mark Palmer

I recently facilitated a fundraising “concept” workshop for a 1st XV rugby tour of Fiji, at my son’s school using agile. We had about 20 players and their parents and managed a fully prioritised, short-list of 5 fundraising activities (“features”) within about 1 hr, using low resource allocation and maximum benefit as our 2 success sliders. There’s also a backlog of lower benefit activities. We are now running a “spike” on a couple that require some feasibility analysis and then next week we are meeting again to develop the story cards for each activity. If you get an opportunity to try this outside of your workplace, have a go, because it works.
