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 or 608-890-1052.

Agile IT Special Interest Group Web Meeting 

Reinventing the Organization for Speed 
February 24, 2021 09:00 AM - 12:00 PM 
Discover how to design Agile IT for speed. This meeting will be held via web only. 

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.

Having a fast, agile team is essential. Having many across your enterprise and enabling them with the right structures, capabilities, and culture, make organizational speed possible. We will talk about structural changes in your operating model and essential capabilities to cultivate. Some research shows the speedy company might also exhibit a higher sense of purpose and improved organizational health. Finally, we will discuss learning how to learn. The speed of learning must keep up with the pace and scale of changing expectations, circumstances, and technology. How well we do that will determine our success.

In this Agile IT Special Interest Group event, you will have an exceptional opportunity to think through your challenges and new ideas with subject matter experts and peer agile 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!
