Event Details

Join us in our September meeting as we celebrate our 4th Anniversary

Meetings are 6:00pm to 8:00pm (Networking 6:00pm - 6:30pm)


In the early days of agility around the turn of the millennium, many agile initiatives started as grass roots efforts by passionate developers that were effectively rebelling against existing corporate structures.  As teams demonstrated successes, industry analysts and management consultants started telling their clients that they should get on the bandwagon.  Now more and more executives are involved in enterprise agile transformations. What are executives thinking about agile development?  Is there still a huge disconnect between grass roots practitioners and executives?  Along with Lisa Shoop, Todd Little is organizing the Agile Executive Forum that will be held in conjunction with Agile2012 in Dallas the week of August 13th.  Todd will be on the lookout for key takeaways from this event and Todd will summarize some of what we discover.
