What we’re about
"Agile Munich" is formed as a public, independent community of practice for agile practitioners to meet, exchange experiences, evangelise, learn, and network. As such, it's also a user group registered with Agile Alliance and endorsed by Scrum Alliance.
Whether you are an agile coach or an agile enthusiast exploring how to introduce formal agile practices into your organisation, or simply interested to learn about agile or lean we'd like to encourage you to join the community.
The group covers everything Agile! This includes, but not limited to Scrum, Lean, Agile Engineering, DevOps, agile scaling (and related frameworks), Agile Leadership, Business Agility, Agile HR, OKRs and more.
We aim to organise regular monthly events in Munich. We'll try to diversify the topics addressing both advanced themes as well as a track to introduce more fundamental topics. The official language of the group and our events is English.
Do reach out to me if you are interested in helping out, presenting, or otherwise have any suggestions. And don't forget to spread the word in your network.

- "The Agile Culture Code" with Dr. Stefanie PuckettLink visible for attendees
Agile organizations have a common denominator, and it is not what you might think. It is not their size or structure, not even applying agile methodologies. It is their company culture. In this lecture and Q&A session for everyone who wants to help the team, or the organization unleash their agile potential, we will take a psychological deep dive together and uncover the logic behind the agile culture code we often struggle with.
To unlock the code, you'll learn the three elements which catalyze cultural transformation. To illustrate the three elements, we will look at what happens when progressive organizations neglect one of the three elements. Based on three imbalance warnings you can identify your own challenge (in your own work/ in the team/ in the organization). The TEC model (Puckett, 2020) describes the common denominator of an agility-promoting and -enabling culture across three pillars: transparency, empowerment and collaboration. Transparency ensures equal footing in discussions and dialogues, creates trust and ensures that each individual can think strategically and take informed decisions, as well as self steer. There are three aspects to this: transparency with information and data, transparency with intention and plans, transparency with results and impact. Empowerment means enabling the organization to act upon the information they gained through transparency. To self-organize, to self-steer, to allow for agility. More precisely, it takes: freedom to adapt and create, empowerment to take charge, and ownership with a bias toward action.
Collaboration means flexibility and fluidity in roles to team up where needed, to find and use synergies and learn together. More precisely: Collaboration through exchange and sharing, collaboration through contribution and flexibility, and collaboration through learning and growing together. Company culture is the biggest hurdle and at the same time, biggest lever in agile transformation. This session will leave you with skills and knowledge to identify your organizational challenges, hack them successfully, and use culture as lever.
