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 (https://www.meetup.com/AgileMunich/suggestion/) if you are interested in helping out, presenting, or otherwise have any suggestions. And don't forget to spread the word in your network.

Want to propose a session? We'd love to hear from you. Let us know what's on your mind via: http://cfp.agilemunich.org/

Looking forward to meeting you in the next meetup.

Our tiny community policy:

Community leads and organisers, speakers and sponsors work on a voluntary basis and make a huge investment to bring this event FREE to you. We only ask and expect you to cancel your attendance latest by 48 hours before the event in case your plans to attend change. This is needed to allow others on the waiting list to join and to avoid waste. We take no-shows seriously and will take the liberty to cancel your membership or reject your attendance at future events in case of no-shows. Thanks for your understading and helping us keep Agile Munich a free and thriving community.

How to Facilitate for Connection, Engagement and Collaboration Online

Are you missing those creative and unplanned moments of inspiration and creativity -- the things you can’t plan for?
Are you longing for the magic of human interaction and collaboration?
Are you fatigued with zoom calls and just can’t stand the thought of one more dreaded zoom meeting?

In this day of living on zoom all day long there are some common mistakes made, like:
- Assuming your team members will build trust on their own over time or that remote work cannot be as ‘connective’ as being in the room together
- Hosting remote team meetings as “walk-ons” with little or no preparation
- Jumping right into the work of a meeting without setting the stage for success first
- Interpreting silence as agreement and agreement as decision-making
- Assuming that because the technology works for you, it’s working for everyone else

You may be making these mistakes without even realizing it.
Facilitating virtual meetings is more than sharing your screen. It takes real skill and practice.

It is possible to feel connected, collaborative and engaged…and be online!

Join me for an exploration of the key’s to facilitating virtually and how to create connection, meaningful collaboration and even – unplanned magic!

We will cover the following ways to lead your remote team more effectively:
• The five cornerstones of the mindset of facilitation
• The two, most important actions, that will change the nature of your online collaboration
• How to build connection and trust virtually
