Taking "Learning while Moving" to the next level

When I took a leap of faith and became a full time Agile Coach, I was tasked with conducting new hire training weekly, which included a lecture plus a workshop type of session to understand the Agile experience of the new hires, as well as teach the company's way of working (in regards to process, mindset and values).

When you do the same thing over and over again, it quickly becomes very dull. To make it more fun for myself (at first, it was for super selfish reasons), I started experimenting with different ways to run training. My most favorite was taking people out of conference rooms, especially outside if the weather was nice. The energy level would go up right away. People loved getting up from their chairs and moving! There were smiles, there were jokes, there was excitement and ALL OF IT WHILE LEARNING!

I am taking the Learning while Moving to the next level! This winter, March 9th 2018, I am organizing a workshop which will cover  topics such as Value Driven Development, Best Practice Guidelines of Agile Delivery and much more WHILE OUTSIDE ENJOYING THE SKI SLOPES AND MOVING!

The workshop on Business Process Improvement (using Agile Methodology) is designed to have study bits laminated and weather resistant, teams broken up based on skiing ability, all exercises to be done while on the chair lift or during a coffee break.


7:30-8:30 - Quick Overview of the Material and directions for the group exercises
8:30-10:00 - Team activity 1 while skiing with a professional ski instructor
10:00-10:30 - Break (everyone back together or free runs)
10:30-12:00 - Team activity 2 while skiing with a professional ski instructor
12-1:30 - Lunch and Learn, workshop continues
1:30 - 2:30 - Team activity 3 while skiing with a professional ski instructor
