Lean Camp is an unconference on topics as Lean Startup, Lean UX, Design Thinking, Product design, etc. I like unconferences as each attendee has the opportunity to participate (you can propose a topic), and the interactivity is really high.

This simulation involves a list of issues (impediments) of different kinds and […]

Agile by Example (taking place in Warsaw, Poland) is a great conference. The 1st day there are workshops, the 2nd and 3rd day the conference takes place in a cinema! Great presentations, on a huge screen and comfortable chairs to sit in. One could say that there’s a greater distance between the speaker and the audience, but for me the experience was superior 🙂 Moreover, the speakers were hanging around after their session, so you […]
