The Agile Belgium Community is calling for speakers for the 3rd edition of Agile Tour Brussels, which will take place on October 31st, 2014 in Brussels, Belgium.
What’s Agile Tour Brussels?
Agile Tour Brussels (http://www.atbru.be) is one of the biggest agile conferences in Belgium. Last year we gathered 180 attendees and speakers from Belgium, France, U.S, U.K, Luxemburg, Netherlands and Sweden to share our passion for Agile. The purpose of this conference is to gather in one place Agile practitioners and people wanting to know more about Agile.
At Agile Tour Brussels you will meet a mix of attendees who are either completely new to Agile, experienced or experts.
This year we’re going to have different tracks, and for each of these we’re looking for two kind of sessions: Interactive Talk (Presenter is speaking for most of the time with audience interaction) or Workshop (Primarily focused on hands-on participation with the audience).
Track 1: Experience reports.
Tell us your success or failure stories about Implementing Agile in Belgium (or in Europe), What is (not) working for you? If you’re an agile coach or facilitator, bring your client with you!
Track 2: Pragmatic Track
We’re looking for small changes or fundamentals, pragmatic things that work. How do you gather requirements? How do you run an outstanding retrospective? In this track your participants will learn something they can apply the day after. It can be technical, soft-skills or a process you use.
Track 3: Let’s Play together
This Track is for Agile Games and Serious Games. It’s also the opportunity to suggest “BootCamp” sessions like Introduction to [put Agile method here] or how to estimate with Agile,…
Track 4: Agile Management
What’s the role of Managers in Agile? What’s an Agile Manager? What’s an Agile organization? This track will cover subjects such as Management 3.0, Flat organizations, Evidence Based Management,…
