The word “retreat” is a purposeful choice for the event as it represents a deeper and more meaningful experience of a smaller group of peers, creating time for people to gather in a purposeful way for focused learning and growth. Different from a gathering, open-space, conference or camp, the goal of a retreat is to collaborate more deeply in teams. Retreats are a place to separate from the day-to-day, dive deeply into topics, collaborate wholly with peers, and hopefully leave with renewed perspectives.
- The retreats are based around a number of principles:
- Retreat: The event creates time and space for focused learning and growth.
- Scrum: Learning is done using an empirical framework called Scrum.
- Teams: Teams are the heart of Scrum and are a key differentiator at the Retreats.
- Deep: Teams go deep into single topics, rather than covering many broad areas.
- Long: Learning, collaboration, and relationships continue long after the event.
- Shared learning: The event is designed for deep, collaborative, shared learning.
- Two sleeps: Connections are made when our brains are quiet; the two nights of sleep allow for creative idea formation.
