The health and safety of our members is the UWEBC’s top priority. UW–Madison is monitoring the COVID-19 situation in collaboration with local, state and federal agencies. Based on campus' guidance, this meeting will be held via web only to allow our members a convenient and safe way to attend.

Agile teams are often well suited to periods of change and disruption, given their ability to adapt to fast-changing conditions and business priorities as well as disruptive technology. It is also true that agile teams frequently have relied on co-location of members to excel. We will explore how to ensure they’re effective now that COVID-19 has so many of them to work remotely.

In this Agile IT Special Interest Group event, you will have an exceptional opportunity to think through the new ways of agile and remote work from subject matter experts and peer agile IT leaders. You will learn important steps that you can follow to revisit norms and ground rules. You will take away valuable insights to build a playbook of implementable strategies and action plans.
