Meet people who are building better organisations!

Agile Australia is the annual conference about Agile in the enterprise and better ways of working. It’s the place to gain a myriad of perspectives and strategies to help build successful and innovative organisations. It’s specifically designed for practitioners and business people who are serious about expanding their thinking and ways of working: at an individual and organisational level.

Agile Australia 2015 is themed The Art of Simplicity. ‘Simplicity’ encapsulates the essence of Agile. How do you strip back processes to stop overly prescriptive methodologies taking hold in your complex environment? How do you build simple things (a minimum viable product, if you like) that meet your customer’s needs?

Simplicity is not just art, it is also science and requires discipline. “Simplicity,” said Leonardo Da Vinci, “is the ultimate sophistication”. If it was easy, everybody would do it. The art of simplicity encourages us to explore how simplicity is achieved and consider the challenge of how to deliver more while doing less. It’s about the art of maximising the work not done.

Over the two full days of the event, delegates will hear speakers from Australia’s top organisations. The four concurrent sessions offers topics on the many flavours of Agile, the different approaches, levels of experience, and tools available to organisations today. In addition to the formal sessions, all delegates are encouraged to share their experiences through ‘unconference’ style opportunities like Open Space.

Given the growth of past years, the Agile Australia conference in 2015 is expected to attract over 1000 delegates representing over 250 of Australia’s leading organisations.

The Agile Australia program represents the best of Australian business thinking, making it a must attend event.

What is Agile?

The Agile approach focuses on iterative development. Little by little, collaborative teams can build solutions for their customers faster and better than before.
