Agile Chicago Style Podcast (Coaching)

The Agile Professional Learning Network of Chicago is planning a new kind of conference / learning opportunity.  Listen as Rick interviews the APLN board as they share their vision for RESEARCH LABORATORY 2021 – coming in May!

This Research Laboratory will be somewhat a cross between a Conference, a Hackathon, and an Open Space.  Kind of like a Choose Your Own Adventure conference. 

There will be a Call for Challenges From Organizations, instead of the normal Call for Papers.  The attendees will select, or volunteer for  helping these organizations, and work with them to fix their problems over the next several months. This will allow organizations that can't normally afford Agile Consultants the opportunity to benefit from their help.

In a sense, this Research Laboratory will generate the content that most Agile Conferences end up with.

Listen to the podcast for more details.  And check out the APLN Chicago page here.

Rick, Matt and Mike invite Marcelo Lopez to join a conversation about what Agile Coaching is, what it used to be, and what it has become.  Marcelo joins about half-way into the discussion, and this one is a long one.  So, buckle in, this will definitely have some opinions you do not agree with.
