My ambition is to help the agile community grow, help to start taking a look to the left and right, to connect with other good and helpful movements, that come from people`s belief that the world really can be a better place.Green, sometimes invisible, like a magician! Impressive, but not hazardous; convincing, and always observing. I´m the watcher of the light for my teams. The need to be protected, before they can be asked to commit. Stakeholders, you shall not pass!

For that I want to get in contact with other ScrumMasters, Agile Coaches and POs to talk about their "realities" and their experiences with that and to validate different concepts.I will exchange experiences, methods, adaptions, whatever other participants are interested in

Anke MaerzMy company wants to go agile and is transitioning to Scrum. (I was involved in defining and establishing the process.) Therefore, I did the PSM-I and PSPO-I certification at, I read several books and now I am the Scrum Master of a big product-to-be and of a currently small team.I plan to explore how the role of an agile coach can be interpreted and how much of it I can (and should) include in my Scrum Master role. Examples: how can I make coaching feel appropriate in business context (especially as I'm quite young and unexperienced). How can I learn to ask powerful questions rather than trying to solve people's problems myself (and in which contexts can I apply these questions)?I'd love to share my experiences and I have (and plan to raise :-) ) a whole lot of questions, e.g. how to help people discover their own agile path.Red with golden sparkle.

Claudia Nottebrock experience as a developer being part of a scrum team which tried being agile in a waterfall environment for years, mostly failing miserably, but slowly, slowly making progress. After passing my SM certificate I also served as (a pretty bad) scrum master for a neighbour team for a year or so, until they got a real one. So far doesn't sound that enthusiastic, but years of fighting for a better process kinda got my hooked and pretty curious on how it COULD be, one day, and what I can do.Mainly what and how makes the community tick. Do I want to be a part of this? Like, for real? Or just continue sitting brooding in my comfort zone?Probably by asking pretty stupid questions. Green. With sparkling white teeth.

Daniel HommelIt happened during my studies in 2007 that I started writing patches for the Continuous Integration (CI) tool CruiseControl.NET (CCNET), which lead to personal adoption of the core Extreme Programming (XP) engineering practices like Test Driven Development (TDD) and Refactoring (and obviously CI). After a few months of activity I got invited to the CCNET core team in 2008. After the first months in my first job after university, somewhere between mid 2010 and early 2011, I started adopting Scrum with my team. I was working as a developer then. In early 2012 I also started hosting Coding Dojos for my colleagues every few weeks to pass on my knowledge about TDD and Refactoring. In the following months I took several trainings with accredited trainers from ScrumAlliance, leading to a certification as Certified Scrum Professional (CSP) in early 2013. Just a while before my CSP certification, I took over the role of the ScrumMaster for my team in the end of 2012, while still working as developer for the same team for approximately 50%. This role conflict caused more and more of a struggle and lead me to lay down the ScrumMaster role again for a short time in the end of 2013. In 2014 I switched to a new project where I started as full-time ScrumMaster, where I still work today. In this project we have currently 3 Scrum teams working on the same code base and we are planning to scale up development further to 4 or 5 teams during 2015. In this project I had the chance to experience and tackle the challenges that come with scaled agile development and the opportunity to work in a community of practice on a cross-team level together with other ScrumMasters. Recently I’m also very interested in ways to create and sustain organizational change. Also, over the years I have co-founded two meet-up groups about agile and lean in two of the companies I worked for. Both are still alive as of today.At ACCDE I would love to learn more about the different thought-schools of and approaches to coaching single persons as well as groups. I’d also like to interview trained coaches about how they liked their training or education program to find out which one could be right for me to take in the future. I’d also like to share experiences with and learn from other ScrumMasters and team facilitators and coaches and find new ways to improve my practical skills to serve my teams better when I get home. Specifically, I’d like to improve my skills in the area of helping teams in times of high pressure, to deal with and overcome negative team dynamics and do a great job with a sustainable effort while also having fun and joy in the workplace.I want to contribute to ACCDE primarily by just being there. I’ll provide an open ear where needed and share my thoughts and experience with everyone interested. In particular I developed a growing interest in running fun and effective retrospectives and I plan to host a session on this topic at least. Another area of interest is facilitation techniques for different group sizes, as well as team building activities that lead to better empathy and trust among a team. While I would not view myself as an expert in this area I would still be happy to host sessions on this topics.Recent events brought me to the thought that I was a boring and gray dragon for quite a long time, but that in fact I am a shiny colorful one beneath the dust. I think orange is my new color.
I am a CSM and CSPO. But on the "real" experience I have worked in XP methods ten years ago. Later I did some years doing scrum (both failing and succeeding), coaching companies to do so (also both failing and succeeding). I am currently workiing as a Scrum Master and tend to call myself agile coach every now and then.I am very interested in the love and sharing I have experienced at accde14. And I have learned an awesome lot. I plan to deepen this, learn about new things, trends or don'ts. And I plan to get some hugs. And a glitter tattoo.I plan to give hugs. And kudos cards. And I will share my expertise. Both in coaching (where I have little) and in changing (where I have a little more). I hope to add some sessions on methodology like estimations, continuous whatever and crafts(wo)menship. And I plan to contribute to some sessions. Maybe I juggle a bit. And I also plan to close the bar at least once (be among the last ones to leave). And has to have goals in life ;)I used to be a software architect. So my answer ist of course: It depends. On my mood. On the lighting conditions. On the environment. But I think I'd be mostly greenish (I want to become a fireman!) with a rainbow shimmer. Glittering, of course, after I find Gitte... And maybe also from the hugs with my kids. Their clothes leave traces of glitter everywhere.
Dobroslawa (Dora) Wierzbicka@DobroslawaWJust look up "Dobroslawa Wierzbicka"I'm still more of a theoretician than a practitioner of Agile. I support JIRA Agile, so I got to learn about our customers' approaches to Agile methodologies. I'm a Certified Scrum Master, read a lot about and go related Meetups; outside of small side-projects, though, I've got little practical experience. I'm looking forward to talking to people who use Agile practices on a daily basis. I'd like to learn, too, about complete Agile transformations rather than isolated issues related to the tools. I've got an extensive knowledge of main problems regarding implementations of Agile tools. Most of these cases more or less directly expose issues in the Agile transformation at large ("we're Agile but we need this report for the managers"). That's the experience I could contribute with, in a addition to the theoretical knowledge of the Scrum framework.Classic green with tasteful turquoise details

Eike Reinel@eike_reinel'm a Scrum Master since my CSM in 2007 and an agile coach since 2009. I work as a coach for our TNG software development teams and for companies of different sizes, ranging from SMB to big global companies like well known car manufacturers. I like Scrum and Kanban, but in general I think an agile, Kaizen mindset is important. I give Scrum and Kanban trainings. Besides working as a coach, I'm one of the founders of TNG and therefore I'm one of the managers of TNG taking care that our our customers and our employees are happy :-)Myself :-) Agile coach camps are my main source of ideas and energy throughout the year. I enjoy talking about agile mindset and methods with other lokeminded people. Many of the participants at the ACCDE got real friends over time so coming back to Rückersbach is meeting my “agile family” again. Hot topics for me currently are agile methods in very large companies and the question who to turn these tankers. Besides that I plan to explore the surroundings of Rückersbach in a Geocaching session with other nature loving people again :-)1. I want to share knowledge I got at play4agile 2015 and share experiences about games. 2. I want to talk about agile in big companies. 3. I want to offer a session about gamified hiking again (a.k.a. Geocaching). 4. I’ll see, what comes to my mind during the ACCDE and share that with the other people :-)Green, what else? :-) (green is hope :-))

Frank Schneider I am looking forward to agilizing the adminteam in our company. I am ScrumMaster for several years now, most of the time responsible for 2 dev-teams. I studied political science, started in IT as a project manager, with all the pain following a longterm plan with just little adaption, looking for better solutions, like iterative approaches.Learning from each other, exchange about current todos, like agilizing the company furthermore: administration and other departments like customer support, marketing, recruiting etc.My contribution is to talk openly about my successes, failures and learnings. Participating in workshops means for me bringing in my curiosity and experience. Green because that matches best with my eyes.

Jasmine Zahno occupy a position named scrum master at the moment, as many of us I did read a few books and I am a very keen participant on many events linked to agile and new work place in general... All in all I still feel like a newby and my expirience is not extensive as there is still heaps to explore and learn...Most of all probably myself ;-) I would not want to arrive with a specific expectation but I do intend to conect further with the comunity, to encounter people, ideas, thoughts, disscusions... to search for inputs and inspiration... to share knowledge and a laugh or two. . As I am not originally from IT I can bring some knowledge from occupational psychologie and organisational development into discussions, I have plenty of unanswerd questions of whom at least some will make a good session, I do also plan to contribute with openness an respect maybe the one or other hug ;-) and not to forget a werwolf moderatio in a gloomy voice...

Kathleen Bothe@katlennyemmi
I've been working as a Scrum Master for 2.5 yrs now. Besides my full time engagement within different companies, I started a little agile business with 3 of my friends, who are also Scrum Master/Choaches. Since the 4 of us love "AGILE" we founded the"Agile Cologne". It's an unconference we organizd for the 3rd time now and we're very happy to be sold out this year :-)So far, I don't really have plans for the camp but I do have wishes. I wish to meet people who are just as crazy in love with their jobs as I am. I also wish to share my learnings and learn from others to become better at what I do. I wish to be confronted with new topics, thoughts, attitudes and experiences. And I wish to have fun and enjoy a wonderful weekend with like-minded.I will share my thoughts, experiences and energy with everyone. I could be a sessin-host but I could also share my experiences while having breakfast together, going for a walk or hanging out at night. I'd love to try some games as well as discuss questions I haven't found an answer for. My contribution will be multifaceted - depending on the needs/wishes/impact of the people around me.If I was a dragon, I would be red. Not just because it is my favourite colour. But also because red is such a passionate colour just as my character ;-)

Marcel KilianI'm a Scrum Master for just four months now. Before that I was a student of software engineering where I only had a few chances to learn about agile software development. However that was enough to convince me that agile is the more productive and certainly the more humane way to develop software. That's why I took the first chance I got to get into the role of a Scrum Master for a Scrum team of ten that didn't really have a Scrum Master up to that point.At this point my knowledge about agile is theoretical for the most part. In my organisation the opportunities to learn from other Scrum Masters are very limited so I'm really just looking to learn as much as possible with a very broad scope. One of the aspects that I'm interested in the most is how can I inspire a team to truly work agile and accept the responsibility that comes with it.As I've alluded to earlier I've only a very limited experience. I guess that's what I'm going to contribute: A certain dose of naïveté and idealism that people sometimes lose when they've done something for a long time, coupled with a strong believe in agile values and a lot of curiosity.Azure.
Marina HaaseI am a software developer and a scrum master - I have been a scrum master for around 9 years.I plan to explore a lot of things! Retrospectives, team coaching aspects.I will bring my massaging table and offer massages, I will also bring some communication games, for us to practice comminication with as well as some community building games. I also plan to contribute by listening - hearing other people's storiesI have absolutely no idea. This is more of "I have no idea of the solution, but I admire the problem". After reading this question, I have asked a lot of different people what they think - and got into really interesting discussions.

in short: 17+ years, active, practitioner, coach. Extended version: Started introducing agile practices in the late nineties, became interested (and actively promoting) xp around 2002, moderated some agile user groups, currently running the Limited WIP society cologne together with a couple of colleagues. Coached teams in all kinds of lean and agile approaches from finance through startups via media etc.Coaching models, HSD (Human System Dynamics) and the current general approach to coaching (as opposed to teaching) I would offer sessions on negotiation, aikido, probably run a toc-Simulation (Theory of constraints) and I always wanted to explore the Kanban-ones game in a bigger setting.

Ralph Miarka@ralphmiarka started to work in an agile team in fall 2005. By Feb 2006 I lead a team towards Scrum and I'm coaching teams since. Officially I gained the role of an agile coach approx. mid 2008. I work as an independent agile coach for more than three years now. I mostly coach teams in larger companies, like Siemens, Agfa Healthcare and Bison. In 2012 I completed successfully a 2 1/2 year Masters course on systemic coaching. One topic I'm currently interested in is estimation. I want to hear from other coaches what experiences they have on this topic. This relates also to trust between the stakeholders and teams. Beyond that I want to see where the general agile coaching trend is going. Currently several trainings on coaching and leading agile teams appear, including our own What will the future look like? How can we work together rather than blocking each other? What's the potential for collaboration?Together with Veronika, I will provide Open Space sessions on solution focused coaching, the value of positivity and other more general coaching related topics. I noticed that these approaches help the teams I work with to succeed and that I experience less resistance to change from the teams I work with. I will share my coaching insights with others. Hopefully, we can also bring our new book

Sven KöhlerkoesveMy Xing profile is Sven KöhlerI'm coaching teams in adopting agile at Siemens for 2 years now. I've experiences in big bang project starts where we used to train all teams the Scrum Framework and coached them in using it. I also have experiences with a much more people aware way where we used one of the Kanban principles "start where you are and evolve" to start with. From this point I tried (and still try) to help the teams in finding their way in adopting agile methods for their daily work. I'm the only in-house coach in a department of around 70 people. So it's my part to help all teams, management and colleagues of our department find their way in the companies transition process.As I'm the only in-house coach in a department of around 70 people, I'd like to discuss problems I face on a daily basis with teams and management, to share my learnings and experiences and I'm eager to learn from other attendees their ways on how to cope with such situations. I like to learn more about retrospectives and how to convince people in using them for their personal or their teams inspect and adapt process. My experience so far is that bringing trust into the teams is a very important part of being a coach. To improve my ability on this I like to explore others experiences and what they learned.Being the only in-house coach in a department of a big company to support the companies agile transition I might provide a session on the topic "how to convince local management to support an agile transition as an in-house coach".As dragon I would be grayish with a pearly touch. Gray because a coach should not be the focus person. The coachee or the team does. But sometimes it is necessary to take the lead - following the coaching dance - and that's where the pearly touch comes into play.

Thorsten Sturm@thosturmI'm using agile approaches for about 15 years, in the beginning without even knowing that there is something like "Agile". For the past 10 years I supported teams and organizations on their way of becoming agile or strengthening the steps they already took. I did that (and still do) in various roles, but mostly as from a coaching position. I would like to explore how others interpret their role as a coach and what they do in "unusual" situations. My main interest for exploration is on how to make upper management and whole organizations understand what agile approaches can do for them.From my point of view, discussing with colleagues inside or outside the official sessions is what really makes the difference of the coach camp. I'm completely open to share my experience from the past 10 or more years with everyone who is interested. Of course, I haven't decided yet about sessions to propose for the open space. That will be something I will make up more spontaneously. The first topics that came to my mind as I thought about this are around introducing Agile in more traditional environments and working with teams that are not as eager to use agile practices as one might expect.As a kid I really liked Grisu (the little dragon who wanted to become a firefighter). As far as I remember he was green. So I guess as a dragon I would be green as well.
