The Agileseed Tour has begun – a cross-continental excursion to arts centers, city halls and creative businesses over the course of 30 days to share innovative ideas and investigate the look and feel of Agile projects in action. Among the sites I’m most excited about:
Bates Dance Festival in Lewiston, ME
Toronto’s Center for Social Innovation
Detroit’s Motown Museum
Walker Art Center and the Minneapolis start-up community
Helena, MT – Shakespeare, Montana-style, at the Civic Center
San Fancisco’s City Hall and public art
Zero One in San Jose, where art and technology meet to shape the future
and more…because interesting things happen when forward-thinking minds collide.
Meanwhile, the Agile Culture Conference is coming up in Boston and Philadelphia September 13-14, based around the premise that culture has become the gating factor for creativity, learning and productivity in the workplace.
And the Scrum Alliance is hosting a global gathering in Barcelona, Spain Oct 1-3. Among the highlights known to date? Richard Kasperowski of Agile Boston, with details of a radical six-week long Open Space process which resulted in his team’s reconfiguration of their work space to be more human. http://www.scrumalliance.org/events/464-barcelona–global-event
I would enjoy hearing stories of your own Agileseeding adventures, as well as news of related upcoming events.
