  • Our Expertise in Action

  • Theme for 2020

    Agile Transformation within Education, and what can we learn from Agile in Business?


    As Agile Amsterdam nourishes and cultivates the agile mindset, we decided this year to focus on Agile in Education. Our mission is to further spread the agile mindset throughout the entire schooling system; when managing your school, for teachers to collaborate and for their students to adapt agile competencies and character skills.


    The Agile Manifesto and the Agile Scrum framework have been around for decades within business, and we believe that there are lessons to be learned from both sides.

    As such, Incrementor and Tante Lean decided to team up this year to realize this years' mission. Incrementor has fast experience with Agile Transformations within businesses, while Tante Lean is experienced with agile transformations in schools. Together they further developed Scrum in the Classroom, as there is no greater satisfaction than an all-inclusive school-wide agile transformation.

    When everything changes: back to the universally human

    Claire Boonstra, a former tech entrepreneur and an expert in the field of human development, leadership and education (including œ Operation Education) takes you on a quest for the universally human - in which we find important clues for how we can proceed.

    Carl Fikenscher

    Bestuurder 'in ruste' bij Zelfstandig

    Life is learning. Learning is growing. These are my motives in my work and my life. In connection with organizations and especially the people who form those organizations.


    The core of this is the development of personal leadership of everyone in the organization. In education, this means getting the best out of yourself in the service of the children entrusted to us.

    Personal mottos: "Trust is the basis" and "Humor lit".

    Nils Oud

    Agile Transformation Coach, Co-Owner of Incrementor

    We live nowadays in a fast-changing world. Consequently, attained knowledge outdates fast. Many of the jobs that exist today, will no longer exist tomorrow. And tomorrow will bring new jobs that we cannot even imagine today.


    It is therefore imminent that our education system should adapt. Next to traditional subjects, schools should pay more attention to developing future-based competencies and character qualities, such as creativity, collaboration, curiosity, and more.


    ‘Scrum in the classroom’ provides a solution for this. Nils has done an intervention study and wrote a thesis to scientifically support this claim. Learn about how Scrum can be applied in your classroom. Learn why teachers never want to go back to their old way of teaching; learn about how students enjoy obtaining control over their own way of learning.

    In this workshop we will set up within an hour the framework of a good agile project in which at least 400 students can participate at the same time. This project can then also really be carried out at school, where we will still be available for any tips or questions.


    In deze workshop gaan we aan de slag om binnen een uur het geraamte op te zetten van een goed agile project waaraan zeker 400 leerlingen tegelijkertijd kunnen deelnemen. Dit project kan hierna ook écht uitgevoerd worden op school, waarbij wij ook dan nog bereikbaar zullen zijn voor eventuele tips of vragen.

    Certified Agile Transformation Coach (C-ATC 1) - English

    by Joe Krebs & Nils Oud (English)

    Changing an eco-system like a company to an agile organization, is a complex endeavor. Using a prescriptive, plan-driven approach is not going to be successful. Why?


    First, in an agile transformation you can’t know the end-state and big upfront planning simply does not work. Secondly, to get large buy-in and support from everyone, the leadership team needs to lead by example. We want to show you a different, more agile approach.


    This Master Class includes a good balance of theory, plenty of exercises to take home and plenty of fun to keep you engaged throughout the Master Class!
