Event Details

Lyssa Adkins, Michael Spayd and David Chilcott will present a "Taster" of The Agile Facilitator Workshop, a two and one-half day class for experienced Agilists who wish to dramatically increase their facilitation skills in general, especially as applied to Agile ceremonies, collaborative events and other team “moments of truth.” The workshop will focus on professional facilitation skills and techniques as applied specifically within the Agile context.

Come prepared to roll your sleeves up, dive right in and get to work in this activity-based evening!

Lyssa Adkins Lyssa Adkins Since 2004, I have taught Scrum and Agile Coaching to well over a thousand students, coached many agile teams, and served as master coach to scores of apprentice coaches. In both one-on-one settings and small groups, I enjoy a front-row seat as remarkable agile coaches emerge and go on to entice the very best from the teams and organizations they coach. Prior to agile, I had more than fifteen years of expertise leading project teams and groups of project managers (I was even a PMO Director — twice!), yet nothing prepared me for the power of agile done simply and well. I believe that agile is more than an alternate project management methodology and I am passionate about deepening the roles in agile – specifically agile coach and agile manager – to help agile move into its fullest expression. I hold an alphabet soup of certifications: Certified Scrum Coach (CSC), Certified Scrum Trainer (CST), Project Management Professional (PMP), Six Sigma Green Belt (SSGB) and Organization and Relationship Systems Certified Coach (ORSCC).  I am also a trained Co-Active Coach and Leader. In 2010, I authored Coaching Agile Teams: A Companion for ScrumMasters, Agile Coaches, and Project Managers in Transition.

Michael K. Spayd Michael Spayd - In a word, my professional work is about transformation.  I seem to be wired to help people–and systems–change. I am drawn to cutting edge ‘technologies’ for coaching and developing organizations, leaders and teams.  I have worked as an organizational change coach and consultant for more than 20 years, working with Fortune 500,  small businesses and non-profits. For 11 years I have specialized in large-scale Agile transformation efforts, working with numerous organizations, leaders, and over 75 teams in that time. I was trained as a Team and Organizational Coach and hold a Masters degree in psychology,  and I am trained in Co-Active leadership, executive coaching, and organizational behavior.  I am a Certified Organization and Relationship Systems Coach (ORSCC), a Certified Professional Facilitator (CPF), and a Certified Scrum Master (CSM). I am currently writing a book in the Mike Cohn series called Coaching in the Agile Enterprise.

David Chilcott David Chilcott - Has an unusual set of skills that encompasses both the deeply technical and the deeply human aspects of software development. In addition to his background as a system architect, software developer and agile coach, David holds a degree in group dynamics, and has completed formal training in creative problem solving, advanced facilitation, Innovation Games facilitation, non-violent communication (NVC), conflict resolution and Co-Active Coaching, and Organization and Relationship Systems Coaching (ORSC). David is the founder of Outformations, a collaborative software design, development, and Agile consulting practice. He is a board member for the National Agile Leadership Network (ALN) and is the founder of the Bay Area ALN. David is a lead coach for ACI’s Coaching Circles and is a co-creator of The Agile Facilitator course.
