Have you heard about our 3 new event streams?
— Peter Hyde (@ScrumRonin) February 2, 2016
If you have attended one of our previous meetups in 2016, you may have heard Simon talk about the 3 new event streams. The idea to do this came from a planning meeting just before Christmas. We were talking about how we could do more for the agile community and whether our events were the best they could be. A unanimous decision was made that we should do more events as the first step to improvement. Let us know what you think about AWA here.
The 3 Event Streams
- Talks/workshops by international framework creators, trainers & thought leaders. Often we offer the opportunity to attend training courses with the presenter that are not usually available in the UK.
- Talks led by local experts and practitioners who are confident in taking to the stage to share their stories, case studies, successes and failures, or ideas.
- Experiential learning via games. Learning via sharing is hugely beneficial and agile games are a valuable tool to do this. We want to share the games that you have created so that you can get valuable feedback from experienced practitioners and at the same time spread ideas across the community.
New Quarterly Meetups
We’re also holding 3 larger events, with more speakers and activities, which will run each quarter:
These may come with a small entrance fee to cover costs, but we’ll confirm this at a later date. Again – volunteers, speaker, work-shoppers and game creators are needed – so please get in touch here.
AWA Q&A Panel
We have also launched a new feature for the monthly newsletter called the AWA Q&A Panel. Each month – you can submit questions/problems that you’re experiencing within a scaling agile and organisation change context.
We then select a question and get three answers from:
- A trainer / thought leader
- Simon Powers
We then include the question and 3 answers in the email newsletter the following month. You can read last month’s panel here. If you would like to enter a question or answer, please get in touch here.
We need feedback so we can continue to inspect and adapt to what the community wants and needs. So keep sending us your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
