01.30pm to 03.30pm - Open Space Conference (Facilitator: Lane Halley)
At an open space event, people discuss things they care about with other people who share similar interests. An open space event promotes agile values of collaboration, conversation and self-organization. Open space events are used to surface common concerns, brainstorm solutions to a problem or simply to exchange information. At the start of the open space event, participants generate a list of potential conversation topics, choose what to talk about, organize into small groups, engage in conversation and then present their conclusions back to the larger group. The outcome of an open space event is a view into the “hot topics” that exist among your professional community, a chance to share your thoughts with peers, and learn what other people think. It's also an excellent way to network and make new professional connections.
Conveners: Lyssa Adkins, Matt Ganis, Tiffany Lentz, Rob Purdie
03.30pm - 04.30pm - Outro: Panel Session moderated by Matt Ganis and Closing of the AGILE DAY 2010.
