Agile Coaching Retreat Lisbon/Sintra
With the growing COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation and government-imposed regulations in Europe, we have made the painfully necessary decision to cancel the Scrum Alliance Agile Coaching Retreat Lisbon/Sintra originally scheduled in 2020. We were really looking forward to working with you in Portugal and have been planning an amazing experience. We understand that you’ve been excited for the Retreat, which makes this decision even more difficult. We are working with the hotel venue to reschedule the event to 2021.
Please stay tuned for confirmation of those dates. We’re adapting while keeping you, our community, in mind. Stay tuned as we pivot to another viable and meaningful experience. The Scrum Alliance is considering other ways to keep in contact with the community virtually, so please stay connected with us, stay hopeful, and safe and healthy.

- Retreat - The event creates time and space for focused learning and growth.
- Scrum - Learning is done using an empirical framework called Scrum.
- Teams - Teams are the heart of Scrum and are a key differentiator at the Retreats.
- Deep - Teams go deep into single topics, rather than covering many broad areas.
- Long - Learning, collaboration, and relationships continue long after the event.
- Shared learning - The event is designed for deep, collaborative, shared learning.
- Two sleeps - Connections are made when our brains are quiet; the two nights of sleep allow for creative idea formation.
