Since it’s foundation and as part of the vision building session of ALE the term Idea Farm has always been around. The Idea Farm goes quite well with the current representation of ALE:
- no formal body required
- no dedicated organization
- no flow of money making anybody rich(er)
… but instead a large space of diversity of Agile and Lean thinkers and practitioners across Europe and even beyond European borders, self-organized, not controlled. And this space seems like a rich breeding ground for new initiatives and ideas – the ALE Idea Farm.
Already during and right after ALE, ideas and initiatives came up:
- A group working on Visualizing Problems
- A team working on reoganization of ALE web sites and services
- Activities to find a promising location for the next ALE2013
- Actions to organize the next ALE Baththub conference
- Some people following-up the ALE book idea
As there will be even more things coming, we will update and spread the information. In case you are just about to prepare or run a new idea within ALE, drop a note via email or on twitter tagged with #alenetwork.Read More

We have some goodies to announce around the ALE2012 Unconference.
- If you happen to be in Barcelona already on Tuesday the 28th, don’t miss the chance for a day long session with Jim and Michele McCarthy on “The Core and Culture Hacking”. It will take place at the ALE2012 venue and only cost you a share in the room (approx EUR 20,- incl. VAT per person).
- If you want to participate in Leancamp Berlin on 27th of August, drop us a mail to participants.ale2012(at)alenetwork.eu We are partnering with Leanca.mp and in can offer you reduced ticket prices.
ALE2012 is getting ready and the countdown is on. So don’t forget to grab your unconference ticket and maybe some free tickets for your family too
Check out the program – lots of talks, open and interactive formats, room for sharing, discussing and learning. End of August experts on Agile & Lean, community members from various countries will meet again to make this unconference happen.
After having received a great set of session proposals during the past weeks, reviews and selections are finished. We have published the final program schedule for ALE2012 (pdf for download). Besides selected talks from well-known and very experienced Agilists, we will host lightning talks, inviting all participants to talk about their passion and ideas.
Even more, a large part of the program is created by the participants via Open Space. So please bring your ideas, games or whatever format you want to suggest for running your own session. For finding a place to break out discussions we will be opening the cosy ALE lounge. And besides we will run a dedicated kids & spouse program – feel free to bring your family with you, because the family program we can make available at not additional cost.
Parallel to regular talks and Open Space everyone is invited to get their hands dirty – throughout the 3 unconference days we will run a real agile software development space – shipping software every hour on the hour. Last but not least with Henrik Kniberg, Jim McCarthy and Siraj Sirjauddin we will enjoy three inspiring keynotes
If you are a student and want to help us on-site, but still attend at no cost, please let us know.
And … be curious about what else will emerge at the ALE2012 unconference.Read More
