Self-organizing a 50 person party

Sunshine. Over 35 adults and 15 kids milling about, playing and socializing. Some down by the beach eating snacks and windsurfing. Work going on in the background: Pototoes being boiled, tables being set, drinks brought out, BBQ lit. Nobody is giving orders, things are just happening. Looks rather chaotic.

But then at 16:30, precisely on schedule, everything miraculously comes together!

Here’s an article about How to self-organize a 50 person party using agile techniques such as story-papping, taskboards, and pair-based self-organization 🙂

    1. Not sure why we use Meister, think it was at some party many many years ago when we made up silly xyz-meister titles, because it felt funny for some reason 🙂
