agile tauranga 2018

Friday 26 October  |  ASB Arena


Coming back from it's hugely successful debut, Agile Tauranga is back for 2018.


 Being agile is all about being able to quickly adapt to, anticipate and lead change. You have to have been living under a rock for the last few years to not have heard about 'Agile'. Agile Tauranga brings together a collection of international speakers making for an event not to be missed. 


This is an awesome local opportunity to connect with those excited about the power of Agile and listen and talk to four leading Agile experts from Agile Alliance New Zealand who have spoken around the world. Agile Alliance NZ, as a body, was formed to create and sustain a nationwide community who actively advocate for the values and principles of the Agile Manifesto. 


This event will be split into two parts with morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea provided. The morning will consist of presentations from Agile practitioners and the afternoon will be an open space session where the audience sets the agenda together based on what people are passionate about or challenges being faced. So bring your ideas, questions, thoughts and enthusiasm and we look forward to seeing you there!
