I'm attending Agile 2010. Are you?

If you're serious about adopting, grounding, or extending Agile mental models, values, principles, methods, and practices where you work, you'll find answers to your current concerns, and stimulate new questions to consider, at Agile 2010. With 214 sessions ranging across 5 days and 16 thematic stages, you're sure to find many colleagues who face similar challenges.

In Open Jam, the self-organizing area of the conference, you'll find thought leaders whose deep curiosity and desire to learn leads them to sit with you and explore your situation. You'll also find peers and colleagues who have been there and want to share their experience with you. You'll have the opportunity to share your experiences with them as well. I'll spend quite a lot of my time in Open Jam. Please look for me there and say, "hi!" Who knows, we may have a lot to talk about. :)

If you're looking for outside support, you'll find that too, among many sponsors and exhibitors who eagerly await the chance to discuss their approaches, services, tools and products with you.

Among the sessions on the "Building High Performance Teams" stage, you'll find our FutureWorks Consulting session. (We're proud to have been selected as the competition was fierce among nearly a thousand compelling submissions.) Sharon and I have developed a new presentation for the conference on a topic of critical importance to effective collaboration and team functioning: "Trust, Authenticity & Forgiveness: Workplaces Where People Thrive & Produce,". I look forward to sharing it with you on Tuesday afternoon, August 10, from 1:30-3:00 pm.
