Das agile Barcamp Leipzig war wieder mal wunderbar!
Spass hatte Alex bei seiner Session „Sexy Ignoranz – Du kannst nur mit denen arbeiten, die wollen„. Eine Session über #InvitingLeaership!
Und das Beste: Dank Fish-Bowl-Format funktionierte die Diskussion auch ohne Alex super!

Alex started by providing a „conversation cafe on steroids“ for all participants. As an Open Space session he offered „Push or Pull your transformation?“ See the picture below to be inspired how to fuck up your agile transformation:

Hello agile friend,

I am proud to tell you about the upcoming event “New Work Sweden”!

We will have a two days Open Space on October 9th & 10th in Växjö this year. Our topic will be self-organization!
Open Space means that all participants bring their questions and impulses, everyone can propose sessions to fill the agenda in the morning. Then every participant trains self-organization by being part of the sessions he/she is most interested in.
If you haven’t experienced it yet – this will be just one of the learnings you will take away.

And all that for a real attractive community price:

To make you even more happy we are very proud to announce two keynotes and some pre-selected sessions of drivers of the global agile scene:

  • Keynote “Shakeup and Speedup” by Jurgen Appelo (NL)
  • Keynote “Mob-Programming and Self-Organization” by Woody Zuill (USA)
  • Session “Self Care” by Per Beining (DK)
  • Session “Liberating Structures” by Anders Linse (SE)
  • Session “Open Participatory Organization” by Michael Göthe (SE)
  • Session “Why&Who over What&How” by Alexander Krause (DE)

I hope to see you in Växjö this October.

Register til end of September to get the early bird price:

Its been a pleasure, Alex was invited to provide some entertaining and inspirational hours to ScrumMasters and middle management of fortnox in Växjö. Thanks for being so open about your pains and struggles… hope to meet you again.

Corporate Rebels is a group of young researchers visiting newworkish companies and then talking about their findings and insights. A really amazing group of participants gathered. Tons of knowledge and questions in one room :-)


#ALL #Berlin

The 4th edition of the agile learning lab Berlin. Its getting better and better with each iteration. In the first hour we have a warmup for the whole group and then spread out for an open space. We hand responsibilities over to the crowd, this time we had a wonderful woman spontaneously leading the group for the last 3 hours… helping us all and herself by practicing in this safe space!
This is magic!
Join the meetup group, its happening every 4 weeks:

Nach nur 5 Treffen bereits eine Institution! Der agile Stammtisch Karlsruhe ist besonders: Maximal 12 Personen in einem Restaurant, 2 Stunden Lean Coffee, jeden Monat ein mal!
Vielen Dank an Nick fürs Kümmern und Einladen!

The first physical gathering of a clients ScrumMasters from India, Turkey, Hungary and Germany. We met in Prague, so no one was the host and all were guests. With two agile coaches we led 20 ScrumMasters through 3 days of OpenSpace to create trust and commitment for the following weeks.


#ACBC Feb19

Ein informelles Netzwerk „Agile Coaches Berlin Connection“ trifft sich schon lange… agile Freunde… mit einer Vision: Make Berlin the Heart of Agile!


#ALL #Berlin

This was the second iteration of the AGILE LEARNING LAB BERLIN (fka Scrum Master Clinic Berlin) – a 4 hours block of collaboration and learning. I started this meetup with „Humans & Giraffes“ – an exercise I experienced just two days before at the Scrum User Group Karlsruhe.

WOW! This is what it is all about in this community: Sharing, experiencing, copying, practicing, growing! And it works! Thank you for helping me learn this.


#ACCN 2019

Same procedure as last year: The Agile Coach Camp Norway is just the best start into a new year… small and familiar, best coaches from all over Europe, sauna, snow and delicious food! See ya next year again (January 3.-5. 2020).

Inspired by Tobias Mayer some agile Wizards tried the ScrumMaster Clinic format in Berlin for the first time. It was a blast… we liked it and we will do it again.
One of the first things was changing the name to „Agile Learning Lab Berlin“- or shorter: ALL-Berlin!
Join our meetup group if you are interested and like to be informed about the next events: Agile Learning Lab Berlin (fka ScrumMaster Clinic)


Ein wilder Ritt durch den agilen Wasserfall

Mitschnitt der agilen Bodensee Konferenz im September 2018

In der letzen Septemberwoche fand wieder die agile Bodensee Konferenz in Konstanz statt. Übersichtlich und gehaltvoll wäre wohl eine gute Beschreibung.
Gabriele Kottlorz und Alexander Krause boten am Mittwoch einen „Montag geht`s los: Tools und Skills für den New Leadership Spickzettel“-Workshop an, die Themen waren Check Ins, Visualisieren, Fokus (-zeit), Priorisierung, und Reflexion.
Am Donnerstag durfte Alexander Krause dann die große Bühne nutzen und ging auf „einen wilden Ritt durch den agilen Wasserfall“.

This was a great good bye – Alexanders last work week in Munich ended with a wonderful crowd of liberating structures praktitioners… thanks for havin me in the orga-team, thanks for the practice & joy!

Was für ein Spaß! Alexander Krause hat das PMcampBER gesponsert und dafür einen Raum „ALEX“ bekommen. Gemäß seinem Motto: „Nur wer spielt kann auch lernen.“ gabs ein kleines Bällebad und 30 NERF-Guns, um ein neues Pausenverhalten zu trainieren…
Wir freuen uns auf 2019 und schauen, ob es dann ein richtig großes Bällebad geben wird ;-)


Liberating Structures lunch session in Växjö

LIBERATING STRUCTURES lunch session in Växjö / Sweden - June 5. 2018 from AgileChanges on Vimeo.

Damn… we failed to sell a 2 day open course „lean-scrumban-thinking“ in Växjö/Sweden… but: Instead we had a wonderful #LiberatingStructures lunch-session at the softhouse office.

Topic of the meetup was MEETINGs! Alexander Krause presented a string of 3 liberating structures (Impromptu Networking, TRIZ and Troika Consulting) to find some first steps on how to improve your meeting-culture.

Tolles Barcamp, tolle Menschen, tolle Location: Bei feinstem Wetter im Unperfekt-Haus in Essen haben agile Menschen 2 Tage lang diskutiert.
Meine Highlights:
– Reden über Geld (was verdient und was bekommt ein ScrumMaster?)
– Karriere im agilen Kontext
– Session von Daniel Bartel und Alexander Krause: Exnovation

„You will not get a certificate!“ schön, dass es das noch gibt… open source… nutze es…
Ein tolles Orgateam rund um @KeithMcCandless hat 2 Tage lang die volle Packung Liberating Structures erlebbar und erlernbar gestaltet. Danke dafür! Und Danke für die vielen tollen Teilnehmer, die diese Veranstaltung zu einem ganz besonderen Ereignis gemacht haben!
