From 31st May till 2nd June 2019 we met again in the beautiful Trout Farm “Păstrăvăria Albota“, in the heart of Transylvania for the fourth edition of Agile Coach Camp Romania. Two days of learning and playing on the topic of Agile, with participants from Romania, The Netherlands and Germany.
We wanted to start with a warm-up to get us in the creative mood and be prepared for two days of intense collaborative learning. So we started with a pre-event, on Friday from 4pm. People that arrived by that time, despite the rain, were welcomed by a series of challenges with an Agile flavour that were both funny and slightly stretching their comfort zone:
Build a Marshmallow Tower…
Lift the cup…
Invent & sing an Agile Song…
Agile Coach Camp is an Open Space Technology event and the Agenda emerges from the participants. So on Saturday morning we opened the day by filling the grid with the topics the participants prepared before or wanted to host a session inspired by the conversations.
That’s why our mottos are “Prepare to be Surprised” and “Dare, Share, Care“.
This year, as a premiere, we had a session proposed by a kid! It was a Drawing Lesson, really appreciated by the grown-ups who participated.
