Submissions wanted for Agile Leadership Summit 2006

The Agile Project Leadership Network (APLN) is once again sponsoring an Executive Summit at the Agile2006 conference, to be held in Minneapolis, MN in July of this year. Known until 2004 as the Agile Development Conference's Executive Summit, it offers a unique opportunity to start or to continue one's journey towards being a great Agile Leader.

Suitable for both both organizational leaders and project leaders, it is a chance to spend a whole day with some of the world’s leading experts in the area of Agile Leadership, to network with them and to share experiences and concerns with them and other leaders, representing wide practical experience.

The program educates through a tutorial and experience track in parallel with exploratory think tank breakout sessions that build on each other as the day progresses. The organizers are looking for experience report presentations for the afternoon sessions of this track. But do it quickly! The deadline for entries is May 31st, 2006.

Two Experience Reports will be selected for each of the following topics:
  • Leading Agile in a Non-Agile Environment
    describing how Agile Leaders introduced agile principles and practices in a non-agile organization and the lessons learned from those experiences.
  • Leading From a Position of No Power
    experience reports describing how someone found themselves leading from within an agile development team and the lessons learned.
Each experience report presentation will be allotted 30 minutes and once both have been presented they will be followed by a discussion, giving the attendees an opportunity to ask questions or share their similar experiences.

An experience report is a story about project that you have participated in that would be of interest to summit attendees - so, only direct experiences qualify. Even if you have not presented at a conference or summit before, this provides a great opportunity to get some experience presenting for your peers. Check out the rest of the Agile2006 conference too - the schedule is absolutely jammed with both didactic and experiential teaching from senior Agile thinkers, and includes an OpenSpace track to address your own burning questions - an opportunity not to be missed!
