Welcome to the Agile Coaching Exchange (ACE). We are a long running Agile meetup group linking up Agile practitioners around London with some of the best and most creative speakers, thinkers and doers the community offers.
Since we started in 2012 we have been passionate about providing a free space for people to learn, share ideas, seek support and connect with each other.
Based in London, our simple philosophy and approach to meetup groups have inspired 6 chapters across the US.
As a Scrum Alliance affiliated group you can earn SEUs towards your Certified Scrum Practitioner certification by attending our events.
The Agile Community has missed the mark on scaling. While the Agile Manifesto values individuals and interactions over processes tools, the agile scaling frameworks have taken the opposite direction. So while scaling frameworks are hyping their outliers' performance benchmarks, most organizations are disconnected and discontented.
Organizations mirror their leaders. Thus, agile organizations require agile leaders and scaling agile ways of working across an organization requires agile thinking and behaviors across its leadership network. This session explores the agile scaling disconnect and how coaches can connect and ignite leaders to their role in shaping the culture to improve business outcomes.
