Description

2017 - Agile Coach Camp NYC

The Coach Camp

Agile Coach Camp is a peer-to-peer learning, exploration, and action based event that occurs in an Open Space environment.

At Agile Coach Camp, people come together around a high-level topic or need and create their own agenda. Then, people gather into groups to brainstorm, debate, collaborate, co-create, plan, play, tell stories, and discuss the topics proposed on the agenda, known as the marketplace.

As with the original coach camp held in Ann Arbor in 2008 and all subsequent coach camps afterward, you will work with some of the top minds in the agile community to develop your own conference agenda and have the talks that are most important to you.

This year’s camp’s overall open space will be facilitated by TBD with assistance from TBD, while each topic space is held by the person posting the topic.

Raleigh Coach Camp Theme:

Coaching in the Real-World: Around, Out, Up, and Within.

Why Agile Coach Camp?

The art of coaching teams toward excellence and productivity is tricky business. We often don’t have direct control over groups and yet have responsibilities to motivate team members who don’t report to us. Too often, as coaches, we work in isolation from other expert coaches in the field and rarely get the opportunity to meet with experts in other disciplines. This is our opportunity to share stories and practices and to wrestle with the direction in which this discipline is going, or should go.

Growing a Community of Practice

Agile Coach Camp is also about creating a network of practitioners of not only Agile coaches, but related fields such as psychology, facilitation, anthropology, educators, sociologists, game designers, and a multitude of other disciplines.

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.
