Skills Matter is pleased to support the Agile Business Conference which takes place in London on 13th - 14th October 2009!

Being Agile is more important this year then ever before. As organisations navigate their way through recession, completing successful business and technology change projects as quickly and efficiently as possible is even more essential. Agile tools and techniques are the key to achieving early returns on investment as they can offer both pace and rigour as well as providing a sure fire route to those critical business benefits.

If being Agile is going to make a difference to you, your projects and your organisation, we'd like you to join us at this year's conference. Regardless of where you are on your Agile journey, attending the Agile Business Conference will help you to understand how you can justify your investment in the adoption of Agile working practices and to both ensure and demonstrate that your Agile projects are properly focused on delivering real business value.

The programme will run over 2 tracks starting at 08:45 on 13th October and finishing at 13:15 on 14th October. Confirmed keynote speakers and talks include:
Nik Silver, Head of Software Development at Guardian News and Media: Guardian.co.uk, Being Agile and open for a Stronger Business
Iain McKenna, Shaun Smith & Keith Stirling: Project Success, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
Rob Thomsett: The Art of Seduction, Getting executives to own Agility

Introducing AgileCamp
At 1.15pm on Day Two as the main part of Agile Business Conference concludes, join us for a new part of the agenda - AgileCamp. All Agile Business Conference delegates gain free entry to AgileCamp.

At AgileCamp we'll be bringing together the best of Agile with the best of Social Media. We'll learn how Social Media tools and techniques are becoming key to the success of multi-location Agile projects. We'll also find out how Agile methods are ensuring that new and exciting Social Media tools are getting to market quicker than ever.

Don't forget, if you're not planning to attend the Agile Business Conference you can still join us at AgileCamp, but you'll need to register separately here as places are strictly limited, so hurry!

If you are planning to attend the Agile Business Conference and want to come along to AgileCamp you don't need to register twice... just tell us when you sign up for the Agile Business Conference that you'll be coming to AgileCamp as well.

We look forward to seeing you there!
