Welcome!

…to the unconference for Agile coaches. The Agile Coach Camp Switzerland is a free open space conference inspired by the original Agile Coach Camp and consists of two days of highly collaborative, self-organized open space. It’s for everyone involved in coaching, training, mentoring and helping organizations become more effective. It is run as a non-profit, low-cost, community-organized event. Facilitation will be in English. The official hash tag is #agilecc_ch.

The art of coaching teams toward excellence and productivity is tricky business. We often don’t have direct control over groups but 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. 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 Switzerland is about creating a network of practitioners who are striving to push the limits in guiding software development companies, while staying true to the values and principles at the core of the Agile movement. We’ve invited practitioners who, like you, are passionate about their work, active in the field and willing to share what they’ve learned. It’s a great chance to form relationships that can last a lifetime (and act as a lifeline).

Do you have a technique or practice worth sharing with your peers? Or an idea you’d like to test out with some leaders in the community? Are you facing challenges and want to get some perspective from other practitioners, or hear how they do things? If you feel you’d benefit from connecting with ScrumMasters, XP Coaches, Trainers, Change Agents and Mentors to talk, draw, argue and explore ideas, then this conference is for you.
