agile 2011

I’ll be giving two talks this year at Agile 2011 in Salt Lake City Aug 8-12.

Agile In a Nutshell
The surprising science behind agile leadership

Agile in a nutshell is an intro for people who have heard the hype and are looking for a clear simple explanation of what agile is and how it works. Perfect for those looking to make the transition from traditional waterfall.

The surprising science behind agile leadership explains how self directed teams work, the science behind why so many choose to work this way, and the impact it’s going to have on you and your organization.

And if you are going, I would love meet. Here are a few sessions I plan on attending:

Coaching Success: Getting People to Take Responsibility & Demonstrate Ownership: Christopher Avery, Ashley Johnson

What do CIO’s *really* think of agile?: Edward Yourdon

Critical Success Factors for Acceptance Test Driven Dev’t: Jennitta Andrea


Design Thinking: Mary Poppendieck

How to design stuff that matters fast: Eewei Chen

Hope to see you there!
