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 IT Practice Director Cavinda Caldera at or 608-890-1291.

Agile IT Special Interest Group Meeting 

The Value of Product Ownership and Cultivating a Metrics Driven Culture 
February 20, 2020 09:00 AM - 03:00 PM 
What is the true value of the product/service you deliver and how do you measure its impact? 

Crafting a product strategy that provides overall direction, alignment and priorities is becoming increasingly important today. A well-articulated and orchestrated product strategy can provide clarity, focus and accountability that can further drive efficiencies, effectiveness and even contentment within teams. Combining a product strategy together with an evidence-based management approach can deliver some amazing results across the entire value chain. The next iteration of the Agile Special Interest Group will be devoted to this discussion of crafting a product strategy and creating the underlying metrics that inform and guide decision making within teams and the enterprise.

Please join your peers from across Wisconsin to share, explore and learn how to more effectively promote Agility within your own organization. This will be an exceptional networking and learning opportunity for Agile practitioners, coaches, team leads and also those IT leaders with responsibilities in program, product and platform management.
