What’s happening in the world of Agile Australia

With the new year now in full swing, and everyone gearing up for the ninth annual Agile Australia Conference, we thought we’d give you an update on what’s happening at Agile Australia. Read on for this year’s Conference streams; the in-depth workshops available; and the AgileTODAY publication, where you will find articles and insights into new Agile ideas from some guest authors.

This year’s Agile Australia Conference is fast approaching, with the event being held on Thursday 22 – Friday 23 June at the Hilton Sydney. Speaker submissions have just closed, and we received a whopping 280+ submissions, proving that the AgileAus community is full of agilists eager to convey their ideas,  share case studies and successes and failures.

The streams for this year’s Conference, which are centred around the theme of Learning and Leading, each delve into a particular area of interest .

  • Adopting Agile in your custom context
  • Agile Technical Excellence
  • Evolving Agile Organisations
  • Inclusive Culture
  • Learning from your customer
  • Metrics – a critical guide to Learning and Leading
  • The future of work

So what happens now?

Submitters still have the opportunity to tweak their submission and respond to any feedback until March 6 2017. During this time reviewers will be sifting through and reviewing submissions in order to prepare a shortlist.

The program captains will then meet to whittle down and balance stream shortlists to decide which submissions will feature at the Agile Australia 2017 Conference!

We are getting excited for this year’s topics already!


The Agile Australia workshops are a great way to dive deeper into your learning, and walk away with tangible ideas to implement into your teams. Workshops are a part of the Agile Australia Conference, and are on offer in both Sydney and Melbourne.
