What we're about

As both experienced and budding agile practitioners and as people responsible for agile change and transformation, we should recognise the importance of being agnostic with agility at any level. This means one size does not fit all, one framework is not the answer, and the ‘what’ and ‘how’ should be suited to customer context and to a wider strategic vision.

We reflect this ethos in our lively meetups that aim to provide a holistic and well-rounded view of agile to create an informed community of budding and seasoned agilists alike. We often have major speakers take the stage, lively Q&As, games workshops for learning and other events all oriented around creating an active professional community where we can learn and share with each other.

We are the official London-based meetup group of Agnostic Agile: http://agnosticagile.org (http://agnosticagile.org/)

Join our online Community to engage in intimate conversations, find helpful content and other useful learning resources that can only be found in this community: https://citizen.agnosticagile.org/

Here's some things you can expect to experience at our meetups:

• Agile methodologies such as, but not limited to, the popular Scrum and Kanban

• Agile delivery, its many manifestations, and what Agile Project, Programme, and Portfolio Management actually means and is relevant for

• Learn about Product and Change management and how intertwined they are with agile values and methodologies

• Learn about different delivery frameworks, methodologies and their associated challenges

• Discuss the value and relevance of more traditional project delivery frameworks such as PRINCE2, and how they measure up and to the Agile world

• Can Agile scale up to the enterprise portfolio level, how?

• Grow your professional network and have access to experienced Agilists and ask them your questions for advice and feedback

A fireside chat on business agility

Needs a location

Is face-to-face collaboration the most effective method of teamwork?
Or perhaps we've adjusted during the pandemic and no longer think that face-to-face communication is necessary for achieving success?

What is the primary role of an agile coach in your organisation?
Do they help individuals, teams and entire enterprises embrace a culture shift or do they create an agile playbook?

And how about agile experts? What are agile experts and do they really exist?

In this panel discussion, we’ll hear from 3 brilliant speakers Nancy, Noel and Dean on 3 different topics and learn more about their views on business agility.

How to become one of the most effective change agents on the planet - part 2

Organiser note: This event was originally hosted on Dec 7th during an outage on the Meetup platform and many attendees were unable to join. So we are re-hosting the same event.

As change agents in the Agile community, getting people to adopt new ideas and sustaining them can be our biggest challenge.

But what if the secret to our success wasn’t in the ideas themselves.

Maybe what really matters is who we’re being.

How do we know who we are being? By tuning in. By tuning in to all aspects of what’s inside, outside and around us.

Let Richard, an experienced coach, help you find new ways to tap into your full potential as an agent of change.
