What we're about

Welcome to #AgilityLab in Copenhagen!

We are a diverse group of people, eager to experiment with and explore ideas and concepts in the agile space.

We welcome curiosity, creativity, interaction and an open mind. We don’t believe we have all the answers and we do not see agility as a religion.

The organizer team is here to help you get started with events, invites, venues etc. Just reach out to one of us if you have an idea for a meetup.

Looking forward to meeting you soon!

AGILE COACHES, are you ethical and professional? - With Shane Hastie

✳️ No industry standard for "Agile Coaching" exists. ✳️ The quality of coaching varies a lot. ✳️ We have seen agile coaches who know little about Agile. Some agile coaches have never learned to coach! 🛎 𝘐𝘴 𝘪𝘵 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘢𝘯 𝘈𝘨𝘪𝘭𝘦 𝘊𝘰𝘢𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘊𝘰𝘥𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘊𝘰𝘯𝘥𝘶𝘤𝘵? 🛎 𝗕𝗮𝗰𝗸𝗴𝗿𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗱 Agile Coaching has become an accepted and expected role in any agile transformation. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- But according to our speaker, Shane Hastie, Aɢɪʟᴇ Cᴏᴀᴄʜɪɴɢ ɪs ʜɪᴛ ᴀɴᴅ ᴍɪss ᴀɴᴅ ᴀᴄᴛɪᴠᴇ ʜᴀʀᴍ ɪs ʙᴇɪɴɢ ᴅᴏɴᴇ ʙʏ sᴏᴍᴇ ᴜɴᴇᴛʜɪᴄᴀʟ ᴄᴏᴀᴄʜᴇs ᴏᴜᴛ ᴛʜᴇʀᴇ ᴛᴏᴅᴀʏ. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In this Meetup, Shane Hastie will discuss: What is good coaching? What is unethical in a coaching context? How can we, as Agile Coaches, avoid doing harm to those we coach? These are some of the questions Shane will touch upon. 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗯𝗹𝗲𝗺 There are no industry guidelines and standards around what good coaching is and active harm is being done by some unethical coaches out there today. 𝗔 𝘀𝗼𝗹𝘂𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 While having a voluntary 'Code of Conduct' might not prevent this from happening, it could raise visibility around what good behaviors should be expected of a professional and ethical agile coach. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘁𝗼 𝗲𝘅𝗽𝗲𝗰𝘁 During this interactive session, Shane Hastie will present some new ideas around what an 𝘼𝙜𝙞𝙡𝙚 𝘾𝙤𝙖𝙘𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝘾𝙤𝙙𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝘾𝙤𝙣𝙙𝙪𝙘𝙩 could be and engages the audience (that's you!) to add anything that should be included in such a code. 𝗔𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗦𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗲 𝗛𝗮𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗲, 𝗠𝗜𝗠 𝗜𝗖𝗣-𝗣𝗢 𝗜𝗖𝗘-𝗔𝗖 Shane joined ICAgile in 2017 as the Director of Agile Learning Programs and is now the Director of Community Development.

You don't have to be HR to affect change. Just be a daredevil! by Mun-Wai & JF

Humans Make Agile “🅳🅸🅵🅵🅸🅲🆄🅻🆃” - with Phillip Cave

𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐚𝐧 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞 inquiry to experience how humans make anything “🅳🅸🅵🅵🅸🅲🆄🅻🆃”. The good news is you are the one that makes it difficult. Surprise! Where else would it come from but you? Did you think it was SAFe or Scrum or the Scrum Master or the Agile Coach or the Leader or the Team? Nope. It’s you. And even better news, it’s all the other humans too. And this is very good news because it gives you something to work with. 𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐰𝐞 𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐲 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 in this interactive conversation is your version of how you and others make Agile “difficult”. And as a hint… it’s not about Agile. Substitute “Agile” with other words like “relationships”, “thinking”, “society”… etc. Humans Make “Difficult”. The beauty of “Agile” is it becomes a catalyst to play with the heart of any “conflict” or “difficulty” … how humans process Life and how they learned how to process Life. Yes, you read that correctly. You have a process, and you were automatically trained (conditioned) to process the way in which you process Life. And not knowing that is what makes Agile “🅳🅸🅵🅵🅸🅲🆄🅻🆃”. 𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞 𝐢𝐬 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐢𝐟 𝐲𝐨𝐮: 👉 Want to know why it is so “hard” to “Be Agile”? 👉 Want to understand why it is so “difficult” to install SAFe (any framework)? 👉 Want to begin an awareness into your human (and all human) pattern(s)? 𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐦𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐭𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐚𝐰𝐚𝐲 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐚𝐥𝐤 𝐢𝐬: ✳️ Awareness into how you process Life (you, circumstances, others, events) ✳️ Curiosity to see yourself and others in a new way ✳️ A “tool” or two to employ in your life and in your work This inquiry is designed to create a new insight into your pattern and thereby human patterns of processing Life. And then give you a couple of tools of what to do with this new insight for you and any “Agile” movement you are trying to catalyze. 𝐀𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐩𝐞𝐚𝐤𝐞𝐫 Phillip Cave, founder of Dear Human.LIFE, is a “being human afficionado” who helps humans and leaders at all levels step into their whole human integrity to express and lead with courage. Through his work with hundreds of humans in leadership, team and life roles, he’s seen firsthand that putting “You” (your whole aware self) into your life and leadership is pure magic for having the results you intend to have, get your relationships and teams to “co-create”, and most importantly, feel good about yourself and your impact. In addition to startup founder leader types (his favorite), Phillip’s list of clients he’s helped include Starbucks, Microsoft, Tableau, Accenture, Roche as well as leaders and teams in tech startups, banking, insurance and health care. While that list might look “impressive” to some, he loves getting down and dirty with real life human “problems” to create “solutions” that matter to the people that call on him to coach, mentor and teach. Phillip has been “around the block” and “in the trenches” creating his own life “messes” in tech startups, relationship systems, large corporations, world travel, consulting and coaching. He takes his own life experiences to then compassionately connect with others with a little zest and fire. He shares what he calls his “personal WTF moments” because he always wants to be reminded of his humanness and to relate to our collective humanness.
