Gatineau, Canada (PRWEB) October 11, 2012
The local Agile community is proud to bring the Agile Tour™ event to Gatineau and Ottawa. The first edition of the Agile Tour in the National Capital Region will be a full day event held on Wednesday, November 28th, 2012 at la Maison du Citoyen located at 25, rue Laurier in Gatineau.
Agile practices can be applied to all types of projects and are aimed at improving the customer’s satisfaction through an incremental approach which facilitates openness to changes and brings the best out of teams. The Agile Tour is for technology companies of all kind and also for any organization thinking of developing software like mobile applications to better serve their customers. Agile practices are also increasingly used as a management approach to implement lean and customer focused behaviors in organizations to better interact with customers, suppliers and partners.
Agile practices are more popular than ever, driven by the need for businesses to deliver more with less in today’s wavering economic environment. At the end of 2011, the Project Management Institute launched a new PMI-Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) program, recognizing the importance of Agile Practices. On April of this year, Steve Denning wrote in Forbes Magazine that “Agile was the Best-Kept Management Secret on the Planet.” The world is quickly becoming Agile and here’s your chance to prove that you are too!
A team of experienced and dedicated Agile practitioners are committed to providing a high quality conference to more than 200 anticipated professionals. Featuring four tracks, the event will combine 12 insightful talks and interactive experiences from some of the most seasoned Agile practitioners in the region, including Ellen Grove, Glenn Waters and Mark Levison. The event will also feature two high caliber keynotes in J.B. Rainsberger and Michael J. Hughes. Additionally, an open space will be provided throughout the day allowing anyone to bring a topic forward and discuss it with attendees.
A full program listing can be found online on the Agile Tour Site.
Tickets for the event are now available at a rate of $55, or $33 for students. Tickets include a continental breakfast, snacks, lunch and door prizes.
The Agile Tour is organized in partnership with Agile Ottawa and Agile Alliance and sponsored by Développement économique - CLD Gatineau , Agile Pain Relief, Macadamian and YOUi Labs.
