Calling all Agilists… new and experienced!
Whether you call it Lean, Agile, Scrum, XP, Kanban, Scrumban, or any number of other names, many of us have discovered a new way of developing software (and other valuable endeavors) that can dramatically improve our productivity and joy at work. We believe in the empowerment that can be achieved for individuals within companies that have Agile cultures, team structures, tools and processes.
We started in San Francisco, CA in July of 2014. After over 3 dozen highly successful meetups, we are now opening up Agile Potlucks™ so that they can be hosted by everyone.
Who Should Attend?
We welcome everyone who has an interest in improving the productivity and well-being of their teams, regardless of industry. There are several experienced Agile coaches in our ranks. Whether you are a startup founder or a seasoned enterprise executive, a member of a long-running Scrum team or learning about Agile for the first time, we would be very glad to have you join us.
Why a potluck? Why not something “easier” to attend like Lean Coffee?
Because attending Lean Coffee is too “easy.” You can forge a deeper connection with someone when you’ve invested more in meeting them (just ask anyone who goes to Burning Man…).
Whose crazy idea is this?
The Agile Potluck™ was invented by Chris Gagné, an Agile Coach in San Francisco who helps everyone from startups to Fortune 100 companies create a more productive and joyful environment. Agile is his spiritual practice manifested at work. Through the gracious participation of gracious co-hosts and dozens of attendees, the potlucks keep getting better!
