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.

Description:

Culture counts in all organizational transformations but it becomes critical in agile transformations. Organizations can do agile by changing their structure, processes, and technology. But they cannot be agile without changing the way people work and interact daily. Enabling a successful, agile transformation requires a fundamental shift in culture. In this session we will hear lessons learned from organizations that have successfully made this shift and help catalyze the transformation for other organizations just starting out on their journey.

Key Take-aways:

      
  • How to take change from organizational to personally meaningful
  •   
  • How to build and sustain a new culture that supports behavioral expectations.
  •   
  • Learn the value of monitoring progress, evaluating behavioral change and its impact on performance, and running regular retrospectives to learn from successes and failures.

In this IT Peer Group event, you will have an exceptional opportunity to think through your challenges and new ideas with subject matter experts and peer IT leaders. You will take away valuable insights to build a playbook of implementable strategies and action plans.

Participate in Customizing the Agenda: You’ll have the opportunity to play an active part in shaping the agenda for this session – and to maximize its relevance for you – by suggesting and selecting topics for break-out discussions. Once the agenda is complete, you choose the discussions you want to join. This will be a highly interactive session so come prepared to share your questions, challenges and insights!
