Agile Alliance and the Agile Leadership Network, enter the third year hosting the Agile Executive Forum, an Agile software development event tailored exclusively to senior IT executives. Set for Aug. 5, in conjunction with the Agile2013 conference in Nashville, TN, the Agile Executive Forum offers senior technology executives the opportunity to participate in a "peer-only" environment where they will share practical, hands-on presentations and forge new relationships with industry colleagues.
"The purpose of the Agile Executive Forum is to provide a unique environment for senior IT executives to share common experiences and network with like-minded peers outside of the usual dynamics of an industry conference," said Todd Little, Executive Forum co-chair. "The presentations and sessions are led by executives and the format is very interactive. Any IT executive looking to share their passion and experiences with Agile development will find this event very valuable."
The Company noted that confirmed speakers include:
-Gary Gruver, VP of QE, Release and Operations at Macy's: "A Practical Approach to Large Scale Agile Development"
-Susan Courtney, Senior VP and Chief Information Officer for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska (BCBSNE): "Our Transformation Journey to Enterprise Stable Teams and Servant Leadership"
-Charles Evans, Chief Technology Officer and Executive VP Development, Intergraph: "We've been to the moon! How hard could Mars be?"
-Brad Jaehn, VP of Product for Gogo: "Gogo Adopting and Scaling Agile"
-Simon Galbraith, CEO Red Gate Software: "Board Level Agile, A CEO's Perspective - Using Agile with my Executive Leadership Team"
-Ojonimi Baku, Director at Walmart, "WalSmart: a Lean Startup Approach Within Walmart"
-Nagaraj Srinivasan, VP Technology at Landmark Software and Services, "Enterprise Architecture for Enterprise Agility"
-Julia Cichowski, VP of User Experience Design at Fidelity Investments: "Fidelity Investments An Agile User Experience"
The Agile Executive Forum is structured as a combination of short presentations of experiences spotlighting success stories and transformation challenges and group events with opportunities for networking and community-building. Offered as a convenient one-day event, attendees will have the opportunity to experience a diverse collection of peer executives' journeys into agility and participate in conversations to integrate enterprise agility into future strategies that align seemingly disparate goals, teams and reserves.
Agile Alliance is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the concepts of Agile software development.
