4th Annual one-day Agile Conference in Chicago on May 3, 2021

 

CONFERENCE THEME:

“Episode IV – The Quest for (Real) Agility”

For the last twenty years (or more), Agile frameworks and methodologies have taken the product development world by storm. In the technology world at large, agility has become more of the norm than the exception.  We’re no longer the plucky rebels railing against the tyranny of the waterfall.  To wax poetical, we’ve blown up the DEATH STAR, and instilled ourselves as the NEW WAY OF WORKING.

Yet all is not well.  Surely you’ve seen signs of it out there…lurking. Perhaps you’ve heard whispers, or felt a strange sense of foreboding.  The energy and enthusiasm around agility has diminished. There are now so many different methods and certifications that the true spirit of agility – THE FORCE that guided us seems to be getting lost in the onslaught.

We are looking for speakers who have thoughts on the current state of the agility.  Who have ideas for how to recapture the lost magic.  We want to learn from you, the next generation of JEDI MASTERS.

Help us, noble jedi.  You’re our only hope…

The Call for Speakers Has Begun!

With your help and guidance, together we can rule the Galaxy, and restore balance to the Force…

“Short, the time grows.  Much needed, is your Wisdom!”
