Agile Coaching Retreats


The Art and Science of Agile Coaching

Agile Coaching Retreats provide any current or aspiring Agile coaches the opportunity to engage purposefully with their peers, dive deeply into their practices, enhance their skills, and broaden their perspectives to better serve their client organizations. The word "retreat" was specifically chosen to represent a time away for deep connection, learning, and growth.

Retreats are for anybody who uses coaching within an Agile environment. Attendees range from new ScrumMasters to experienced Agile coaches, product owners, and managers.

  • Candidates should have event planning expereince. 
  • It would be helpful if the candidate have participated as a coach at one or more Scrum Alliance Coaches Clinics.

  • Preference is given to applicants who hold a Scrum Alliance Certified Enterprise Coach (CEC) or Scrum Alliance Certified Team Coach (CTC) certification, or can document their active journey toward an guide level coaching certification.
