PORTLAND, Ore., May 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Agile Alliance, a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of Agile software development principles and practices, today announced the second annual Agile Executive Forum (http://execforum2012.agilealliance.org/) to be held Aug. 13, in conjunction with the Agile 2012 conference in Grapevine (Dallas area), Texas (www.agile2012.com). The Agile Executive Forum, presented in collaboration with the Agile Leadership Network, brings senior executives together to share experiences and insights on the latest strategic thinking in agility practices, and bridges communities that rarely get a chance to exchange ideas and thoughts.
"The use of Agile software development is one of the major mega-trends impacting organizations, from software teams on through to overall operations and the strategic direction that is driving organizational success," said Todd Little, Executive Forum Conference co-chair. "The Agile Executive Forum provides the opportunity for software and business executives to learn from and build relationships with peers that are actively deploying Agile practices to improve efficiencies and drive value from the software development and deployment processes."
The craft of building and deploying software has been modernized during the past decade through Agile development approaches that have matured from team-based, grassroots initiatives to enterprise deployments that extend across all functions within the software development process. The Agile Executive Forum addresses how Agile methods and frameworks are increasing speed-to-value, creating enterprise agility and driving large-scale transformations for increased productivity, collaboration and innovation. The one-day event will look at real world examples shared by practicing executives.
"Last year we had more than 60 senior-level executives from organizations like Dell, Salesforce.com, GAP and Sabre share experiences on how Agile is impacting their organizations," said Lisa Shoop, Executive Forum Conference Co-Chair. "The conference breaks new ground in the decade-long advancement of Agile delivery and how agility, adaptive leadership and advanced technologies help increase an organization's competitive edge."
The Agile Executive Forum is structured as a combination of compelling keynotes and short presentations of experiences spotlighting innovative success stories and transformation challenges, breakout discussions with exploration and problem resolution, and group events with opportunities for networking and community-building. Offered as a convenient one-day event, attendees can tailor their agenda with carefully selected portfolio of presentations, workshops and conversations to integrate enterprise agility into future strategies that align seemingly disparate goals, teams and reserves.
Attendance at the 2012 Agile Executive Forum is limited to 80, and costs $2,400 for the event. The price includes a non-transferable admission to the Agile2012 Conference that is co-located and runs from Aug. 13 to 17 (valued at $2,199).
