AGILE IT Special Interest Group

Leverage shared ideas, best practices and expertise on business intelligence and analytics.

The Agile IT Special Interest Group (SIG) offers a forum to interact, share opinions and expertise, and leverage experiences. The SIG will address a variety of topics and issues pertinent to the successful deployment and operation of Agile methodologies and practices within IT teams.

The objective of this SIG is to serve as an educational and professional resource, as well as a support platform and network for Agile team leads, coaches and product owners. It will allow participants to glean validated operational paradigms, ideas and best practices from other member companies and adopt them to their own Agile environments.

This SIG was created for individuals leading information technology-specific Agile teams within UWEBC member companies. If you would like to learn more about the Agile IT SIG , please review the SIG's charter document and/or contact UWEBC Director Doug Barton at doug.barton@wisc.edu or 608-890-1052.

Description:

The health and safety of our members is the UWEBC’s top priority. UW–Madison is monitoring the COVID-19 situation in collaboration with local, state and federal agencies. Based on campus' guidance, this meeting will be held via web only to allow our members a convenient and safe way to attend.

Agile teams are often well suited to periods of change and disruption, given their ability to adapt to fast-changing conditions and business priorities as well as disruptive technology. It is also true that agile teams frequently have relied on co-location of members to excel. We will explore how to ensure they’re effective now that COVID-19 has so many of them to work remotely.

In this Agile IT Special Interest Group event, you will have an exceptional opportunity to think through the new ways of agile and remote work from subject matter experts and peer agile IT leaders. You will learn important steps that you can follow to revisit norms and ground rules. You will take away valuable insights to build a playbook of implementable strategies and action plans.
