Agile community

Agile Kitchen

We want to brew new content, taste new topics, and let ideas simmer with you and other Agile foodies in our Agile Kitchen

iLean's Agile Kitchen

Our initiative

In the last few years, the world of work changed quite a bit, and many Agile community initiatives struggled to stay operational. With iLean’s Agile Kitchen we want to contribute to bringing the community back together in ways that suit our new reality.

In the Agile Kitchen, we want you to be more involved and enlarge the learning potential of yourself and our community!

Our concept

It’s simple: iLean’s Agile Kitchen is about Agile and people!

Every 6 weeks we gather around one or more Agile topics for interactive learning sessions and knowledge sharing. We invite speakers from our community (maybe you?), or national and international thought leaders to facilitate these sessions about specific Agile topics. The topics we chose are your topics. We gather them on our Agile Kitchen Marketplace (Miro board) and give you the possibility to introduce or support relevant topics.

Let’s get cooking!
