Agile Business Conference Proceedings

Agile Business Conference, London October 10-11th, 2012

I am looking forward to attending the Agile Business Conference event next week which is billed as providing a single forum for everyone interested in the effective application of Agile across the Public and Private Sectors.

The theme this year reflects the First Agile Decade; the maturity, evolution and reality of Agile as the de-facto standard for the management, development and delivery of Projects, Programmes and Products in the 21st Century, in the Public and Private Sectors.

The ABC10 programme will include:

  • How to Evaluate and Start Agile
  • How to Learn, Review and Improve Agile
  • Agile Governance, Project Management and Co-existence

As I have been preparing to attend I decided to kick off by reviewing last year’s proceedings. Currently these are provided as a list of 30 presentations for download with just the title and a link to the relevant PDF version of a PowerPoint template. (There are also a couple of webinars to further wet the appetite for this event!)

Mindmap for Agile ThinkingThis inspired me to start to re-purpose this information into a Mindmap, with the associated presentations, linked as topics. The content is fully searchable within the map and the original presentations and wordles are included. The current mindmap can be downloaded and viewed in the biggerplate web site.


I guess I probably got the original idea for this from Andrew Wilcox, whose company Cabre have been using this rich picture capture approach to promulgate and share conference and event proceedings for some time to the best of my knowledge.

Bernard of Chartres wisely said “we are like dwarfs on the shoulders of giants, so that we can see more than they, and things at a greater distance, not by virtue of any sharpness of sight on our part, or any physical distinction, but because we are carried high and raised up by their giant size.”
