Are you interested in exploring ways Agile methods can be applied to all types of work, not just software development? Then I invite you to join me in contributing to the Agile Service Project in Toronto.

I’m looking for people who would join me in volunteering a specific, short period of time (aka. weekend, iteration, sprint, cycle) to a good cause in Toronto sometime in summer 2010.  We will work together as a team to deliver something of value to the cause, and in the process, we’ll gain experience applying Agile beyond software.

Here are some ideas for service projects that we can deliver with Agile methods:

  • host a fundraiser
  • do a community clean-up
  • canvas a neighborhood to raise awareness
  • fix a run-down playground
  • do a native tree planting
  • spruce up a local senior’s residence

While this is just a short list, the web is full of ideas for community service projects. Check out this list: 366 Community Service Ideas

The project we take on depends on the committed participants. Drop me a line and let’s use our Agile experience and skills to do something meaningful for our community.
