Seeing Agile increasingly weighed down since its inception, Dr. Alistair Cockburn, one of the authors of the Agile Manifesto, devised the Heart of Agile to re-focus attention on the four elements that makes work effective:
Collaborate. Deliver. Reflect. Improve.
The Heart of Agile Conference is a two-day journey that invites people from diverse sectors to have meaningful exchanges on those four elements.
The exchanges are held in four formats allowing different types of exploration: • Plenary sessions let people listen to a key speaker and converse with their neighbors on topics of their interest.
• Experience Reports offer first-hand information and reflection: “We saw this… We learned the following from our experience…”. Experience reports serve as an exchange opportunity for practitioners to learn from others.
• Collaborative Conversations offer joint problem solving with other participants. A facilitated peer-topeer event, where everyone has something to contribute.
• Tutorials provide opportunities to learn directly from experts, whether better ways to collaborate, an aspect of delivery, or some new technique.
• Exhibition Space allows exhibitors to have specialists on hand to discuss their products and services and share industry and solution insights, and experiences.
