Welcome to the home of the Agile Professional Learning Network – Research Laboratory 2021, a new kind of learning experience.
The Call for Challenges has begun. If your challenge is accepted, you will become the key stakeholder to an agile research team that will propose solutions and document the outcomes as your challenges are addressed.
Each real-world challenge will be assigned a team of researchers to analyze the challenge, recommend solutions, monitor the results and adjust course as necessary. Results will be captured and the research team will be co-authors of the resulting experience report.
Each research team will need someone to coordinate the activities during the conference, and make sure the research team continues to meet in the weeks following the conference.
During the conference, all attendees will have the opportunity to attend skill-building workshops to learn about specific agile practices and how to apply them. Do you have what it takes to show them how it's done?
Check out the conference information page for the most up to date news and announcements about the event.
Before you register, think about whether you would like to volunteer to help organize and run the conference.
Before you register, consider whether your organization would like to be a sponsor. Sponsors get many perks, including free tickets!
Register today! Attendance is limited! Early-Bird Pricing and Group Discount rates are only available until April 15. Reserve your place today!
