The Scrum methodology of agile software development marks a dramatic departure from waterfall management. In fact, Scrum and other agile processes were inspired by its shortcomings. The Scrum methodology emphasizes communication and collaboration, functioning software, and the flexibility to adapt to emerging business realities — all attributes that suffer in the rigidly ordered waterfall paradigm.


Agile 2013

Posted by ewok_bbq under



Agile2013 offers anyone involved with software development a unique opportunity to explore the full depth and breadth of Agile techniques and approaches, practical applications, technologies, policies, theories, and research.


With a Program expected to feature more than 200 Talks, Tutorials, and Workshops plus Keynotes and Special Events — each and every participant will find a rich variety of relevant, valuable sessions to attend throughout the week.


Immerse yourself and your teams in a dynamic, stimulating week of focused learning, enhanced further with the power of brainstorming, problem-solving, networking, and collaborating with Agile experts and peers. What an experience!


Learn from and connect with expert Agile practitioners, innovators, and authors who come from around the world to share their experiences, expertise and enthusiasm with you. Take home the actionable knowledge, valuable contacts, and the inspiration you need to achieve your objectives, and make your Agile initiative a success.


The call for speakers is now open for the annual Agile 20xx conference series.  This is the largest Agile conference in the world and is organized by the Agile Alliance.


I have submitted two different sessions.  The first will be an exploration of innovation within an Agile context and that talk can be found here.  The second will be done in collaboration with Pat Reed and will be on compliance, governance and risk management and can be found here.


The venue will be the Gaylord (now Marriott) in Nashville.  Remember to use booking code: ‘C-AGL13′ to get the discount.


Will you make plans to attend? Leave a comment and let me know.  I’ve been going since 2007 and I really do look forward to it.
