In the days before photography, portraits offered self-expression and family documentation, first to the wealthy colonial settlers, and then increasingly to the middle class. Itinerant artists of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, often self-taught, painted inexpensive portraits for rural families, and worked in a style whose charm still appeals today. Join Site Manager Kristen Weiss for an in-depth look at the folk art portrait collection at Cogswell’s Grant, and an exploration of the many families and artists represented in the house.

Coaching Agile Teams: The Mindset and Skills of Great Agile Coaching

The two classes are woven together into a single, intensive and immersive experience that will catapult your agile coaching skills and results to new levels. You will leave a different person!

YOU MUST ATTEND ALL 5 DAYS including evening practices, to get the full benefit for yourself and to be fair to your fellow colleagues as the skills in the class build on one another. When you are gone, even for a short time, you miss a lot. In addition, being absent impacts your ability to achieve ICAgile continuing eduction certifications

You should arrive by 8:00 am on Monday for check-in, to get settled, for light breakfast, etc. Class starts promptly at 9 am on Monday. Class will end 4:30p on Friday.

Daily Class Hours:

  • Monday - 9 am to 8 pm
  • Tuesday - 9 am to 5 pm

 We suggest you fully immerse in the retreat vibe and the ease of being "there" and being focused by committing to stay in Lodging at the retreat center. 

 

About the Retreat Center

The Essex Retreat Center's property is set in a beautiful, peaceful place and is tucked amidst 18 acres of white pines and oaks, less than a mile from the ocean and surrounded by 250 acres of conservation land. Menus are healthy, wholesome and abundant meals with vegetarian options. All meals are prepared by our Executive chef and professional food service staff.

While we feel you will be pleased with the accommodations, we want to make sure that you know this is a rustic retreat center - not a spa. A place to think and breathe in nature, eat wholesome food, and a chance to get to know your fellow students by sharing two (or three) to a room and three to a bathroom. A limited number of Sunday arrivals and single rooms are available for an additional fee. Contact Meg for details. Who Would Benefit from the Bootcamp

  • Experienced ScrumMasters, Agile Project Managers or Iteration Managers who have had years of experience.
  • Agile Coaches who want increased facilitation and coaching skills and the results they can provide.
  • Any experienced agilist interested in bringing more rigor and structure to their facilitation of Agile ceremonies and other collaborative events.
  • Any experienced agilist who wants to help people and teams achieve the changes it takes to use agile well.

The Agile Facilitator  You asked for it, we listened. We are SO excited to be offering a facilitation class that will help you professionally facilitate the Agile practices for your teams. We partnered with two great facilitators – Leslie Stein and David Chilcott – to design a course that fulfills industry requirements for becoming a qualified Agile Team Facilitator. This two-day course requires day and evening class time to cover what you need and allow you plenty of time to practice and get feedback. Here’s the full course description.

Coaching Agile Teams To meet the full requirements of a comprehensive Agile coaching curriculum, we expanded our flagship Coaching Agile Teams course to 3 days. We offered the 3-day version, and students raved: don’t shortchange us with only 2-days! Finally, we can say this is a truly comprehensive course for Agile coaches. Here’s the full course description.Certifications

  • The Bootcamp is accredited by the International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile) as fulfilling all Learning Objectives in the Team Facilitation & Agile Coaching track.  After successful completion of the Bootcamp, you can apply for ICAgile Professional continuing education certifications in Team Facilitation and/or Agile Coaching, provided you meet ICAgile's prerequisites. Learn more at ICAgile.
  • The Bootcamp is also approved by the Scrum Alliance and yields 37 SEUs toward your Certified Scrum Professional (CSP) or to support your existing Scrum Alliance certifications, such as the CSM. Learn more at the Scrum Alliance.
