After driving with a load of stuff to the location we were warmly welcomed by the hotel owner of the Vossenberg Vierhouten. We are really looking forward to this Agile event although on the road to the hotel, we thought we were caught in a classical Waterfall project due to the rain 🙂
The Agile Coach Camp is an OpenSpace get-together, sometimes also refered to as an un-conference. It is a simple methodology for self-organizing conference tracks. It relies on participation by people who have a passion for the topics to be discussed. There is no preplanned list of topics, only time slots and a space in the main meeting room where interested participants propose topics and pick time slots.
Prepare to be surprised by the depth and breadth of topics that are discussed in OpenSpace. Each OpenSpace experience is unique in some way. It doesn’t matter if you contribute a little or a lot. And you’ll probably be surprised that you may know something that others may not. Everyone has something to give, whether they know it or not -even if it’s the “beginner’s mind” that asks the right questions.
All who consider themselves to be agile coaches, scrum masters, change agents, if you are in a role where you mentor or facilitate others in your organisation, or aspiring to be any of these: you are welcome.
In addition, what would be even more awesome, is when we meet across communities to create and share ideas. Perhaps UX-people can help visualise activities, make Information Radiators more meaningful? Or Psychologists can help us understand better how the mind works, so we can learn how to create the best teams? Or to learn from Game Theorists what the mechanisms are behind cooperation?
We look for people who are striving to push the limits in guiding software development teams, managers, leaders and beyond, while staying true to the values and principles at the core of the Agile movement. We invite practitioners who, like you, are passionate about their work, active in the field and willing to share what they’ve learned. Prepare to be surprised! It’s a great chance to form relationships that can last a lifetime. This is an opportunity for us to create a lifeline of professional support for each other.
