Agile Coach Camp India 2020 – Driving & Sustaining Change
It’s been 12 Years and almost 110 viral Agile Coach Camps since our very first Coach Camp experiment. This year, Coach Camp co-creator Naresh Jain along with Jutta Eckstein will lead participants on creating probes for driving and sustaining change in the upcoming Coach Camp on March 15th in Bangalore, organized as part of the Agile India 2020 Conference.
Agile Coach Camp is about creating a network of practitioners who strive to push the limits in guiding teams and organisations, 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.
Target Audience: Coaches, Change Agents, Mentors, and Leaders.
This Year’s Theme: Driving and Sustaining Change
As a coach, you’re often the one who needs to drive and sustain change. Yet, how do you do this? What has helped and hindered you doing so and how can you best pass your experience on to other coaches or how can you best learn from other coaches?
This is the theme for this year’s coach camp and to tackle this challenge we want to invite you to try something new:
Our hypothesis is that for driving change, every coach uses so-called probes, that are defined by small, safe-to-fail experiments based on hypotheses derived from reflection on the current situation as well as on theory. So, probing allows discovering (based on the hypothesis) what’s working and what is not through one or several experiments. This allows to make sense of both the current situation but even more important of the situation we are aiming for. And if we create a knowledge base of our collective wisdom on probes we used (or intend to use) we can learn from each other.
As an experiment we want to invite this year’s coach camp participants to jointly discover, share, create, improve, and finally publish probes that help(ed) driving and sustaining change. As in a typical coach camp, we will use the Open Space format to explore different topics for driving change and we invite you to use probes to focus the discussions on these different topics. We anticipate as a result that the discovered and created probes will provide a foundation for such a knowledge base.
