Become a better leader – Agile Coach Camp Canada in Calgary – June 12-14, 2015

I am one of the organizers for the first Western Edition of the Agile Coach Camp Canada to be held in Calgary from June 12th to 14th, 2015. Come join us as we share experiences and learn better ways of leading teams.

Let’s have a conversation about what it means to be an agile leader, why it matters, and where we are headed. The annual gathering at Agile Coach Camp creates opportunities for our coaching community to share our successes, our learning, our questions and our unresolved dilemmas – all in an energizing and supportive environment.

Agile Coach Camp Canada West is an open space un-conference inspired by the original Agile Coach Camp. Calgary, Alberta is excited to host Agile Coach Camp Canada, West Edition. This is a practitioner-run conference for peer-to-peer learning, exploration and networking for ScrumMasters, coaches, and others helping to transform organizations.

This event has amazing value at $75 for the entire weekend. This price includes all food & drink for Friday evening, Saturday (breakfast, lunch & snacks) and Sunday morning.

Nov 6th, 2014 – Hosting Dave Sharrock at Calgary Agile Methods User Group

Thursday, Nov. 6th, 2014 we’re hosting Dave Sharrock at CAMUG (Calgary Agile Methods User Group). Dave will be presenting on Lean Product Management: How to effectively validate your product or idea? Join us at Innovate Calgary at 6pm as it’s going to be a full house!

The rise of the Lean Startup has led to a deeper understanding of the importance of validating business ideas, from new features to new business models. But many tools available to the Product Owner aren’t adapted to rapid validation. Starting from the principles and practices of agile product management, from defining the product vision to creating story maps and refining the product backlog, you will learn about key practices that incorporate the lean startup principles, allowing a Product Owner to bring the build-measure-learn cycle alive and ultimately earn more value more quickly.
