Why Should You Be There?

Simply Learn, Practice, Connect and Have fun! In a fail-safe environment! For not that much either!

Learn Games and their Fundamentals:

As an Agile coach, you can help people achieve more with their Agile practice if they continue to evolve and grow. Knowing how to embed games in your coaching routine is a great asset for any Agile Coach.

Reading books, attending conferences, talking to other coaches, or even watching videos to learn new Agile games is great but can leave you wanting interaction and immediate feedback. Engaging in playing those games will help you internalize the learning much deeper, faster and with more level of sophistication.

It’s Not Going to Break Your Bank!

Our goal is to bring playfulness for as many as Agile Coaches possible. We wanted to give the Agile community a chance to dip their feet with games and playfulness aspect of it if they haven’t already. We are also volunteering our time and energy to make this event as low-cost as possible. This gives you, and other community members to get a chance to learn new skills and practice them as much as you like.

Connect and Keep Connecting

At the heart Agile is about working collaboratively with others.  Agile Games is the place to play, experiment, and most importantly have fun while learning ways to transform an individual to a collaborative mindset. You will be connected to like-minded people, learn from each other and make connections. You can rely on these connections even beyond the Agile Games Canada.

It’s a Fail-safe Environment

Whatever happens, is the only thing that could have happened. And whoever showed up is the best people to show up. These are two of the principles we are facilitating the day. You must have guessed it right; it’s an open space. No one is going to judge you or question you. You have all the space to explore, backtrack, try again, and again, and again! Let’s say you have an idea to experience with a game; this is the place to be!
