Scrum Coaching Retreat South Africa

We would like to invite you to the first Scrum Coaching Retreat in South Africa, 9-11 February 2015 in Franschhoek near Cape Town

As Agile coaches much of what we do is centered around change. Sometimes that change is revolutionary, but more often it is evolutionary. Small changes over time that contribute to larger organisational changes that are real and lasting. And so we have chosen as our theme for the retreat "Small Improvements." What are the small improvements that contribute to our growth and development? What are the small improvements that will lead to changes that are real and lasting? How do we as coaches recognise, facilitate, and enable these: both for ourselves and our organisations?

Muizenberg Beach, Cape Town, South Africa

This is why we have organized the first Scrum Coaching Retreat in South Africa, to be held in February 2015 at Le Franschhoek Hotel & Spa near Cape Town. It will feature a pre-retreat workshop on February 9 titled "Getting Up to Speed" facilitated by a panel of awesome local and international coaches, and a full three-day Retreat (9-11 February).

The word "retreat" was explicitly chosen to be different from camp, gathering, open-space, or conference. It represents a deeper and more meaningful experience of a smaller group of people. Our intent is to create a time for people to gather in a purposeful way for focused learning and growth. Our goal is smaller events limited to 75 experienced Agile coaches to create focus and shared learning. Retreats should be a place to get away, think deeply, collaborate wholly, and come away with a new perspective.
