Incorporating Agile Into School Systems

You’re seeking ideas and inspiration from those who have DONE Agile or Scrum in their own organization?


Then you’ll love hearing from one of the speakers of our Agile in Nonprofits Summit, Pam Stewart with Operation Spark. Pam is incorporating Agile in her school systems and helping the aftermath of the New Orleans flooding. 


Pam started to incorporate the Scrum Framework first with the senior management team and they now practice Daily Scrum and Sprints. This has helped their team with communication, achieving objectives, and building out strategic plans. Pam’s experience is a great example of how you don’t need to implement the entire Scrum framework at one time – start with one artifact or event that will add value for your team, and build from there.


The implementation at Operation Spark has been so successful in their teams that they are slowly taking the framework and working on using it with the middle and high school students they support to help strengthen students for job interviews and life after school. 


Our team can’t wait to continue watching Pam’s Agile journey and making a difference in schools!


You can hear Pam’s experience directly about implementing Scrum in her organization this 15-minute (free) video here: 


We can’t thank Pam enough for sharing her story and what we are sure resonated with other nonprofits as part of the larger Agile in Nonprofits Summit. Pam was one of our six fantastic speakers that day.
