There are those in the community who talk about "being Agile" rather than "doing Agile." I'd like to avoid getting into that debate but share two examples of how Agile-thinking has bled over into parts of my non-work life.
Example #1 - The Gear of Theta Tau
I am the Editor-in-Chief of my fraternity's magazine, which is published twice a year. While it has been adjustment for me to get used to finalizing a magazine rather than software to Done Done because there are no more changes or tweaks after it has gone to print, I have found it extremely helpful to track the progress of articles using a kanban board. Right now I am using an electronic tool, and it allows me to see articles that are still in the Idea stage, those I am waiting to receive or need to write, ones ready for editing, and articles that are ready for design. Since I receive articles throughout the year, I can get a visual sense of whether I have enough content for a magazine issue or if I need to take action to generate more. I used this method for the latest issue of the magazine, and I can see that I already have some content for the next issue.
Example #2 - Trebuchet
Some friends of mine started the DFW Trebuchet Society a few years ago, and I decided to participate this year. While my role was primarily focused around safety, I also helped us stay true to our planning by making sure our kanban board was updated each week. We had to find the right balance of planning/design vs building, and I think we were pretty successful. Our team, Hello Trebby, performed well and looked cute too.
