We're going around the Globe! There is power among people and there is power in an Agnostic Agile Mindset.

About this Event

Although times may be uncertain, one thing will remain true - there is power among people and there is power in an Agnostic Agile Mindset.

Agnostic Agile is launching #AAConf, a global, online conference that will run through Asia Pacific, EMEA and the Americas. The theme for #AAConf 2020 is Business Agility.

Since its launch in 2017, Agnostic Agile has had an organic growth to ~2500 signed people worldwide. We are at the tipping point in the Agile Industry, where employing an agnostic mindset towards agility is becoming more and more commonplace, and Business Agility is recognised as one of the most important facets of work.

Speaker lineup for this event:

Arie van Bennekum

Business Agility is on the table in a lot of companies. Strange it is only happening the last couple of years, Agility only has corporate benefits when you do it all together and not just IT. On top of this, companies who want that transformation, struggle to become Agile.

What is needed to make that change and btw, what does the Agile domain have to offer?

Arie’s answer has always been agnostic, even in his delivery projects before writing the Agile Manifesto. He will take you on his journey and point out how Agnostic Agile helps him and how he mixes practices from various methodologies depending on the needs of the team.

Alistair Cockburn

Asked by IBM in 1991 to create a new and modern methodology for the IBM Consulting Group, Dr. Alistair Cockburn started studying how teams succeed. His team was one of the few that succeeded with commercial object-technology projects in the mid-1990s. His book Surviving Object-Oriented Projects showed how they did that.

Continuing his research, including being special advisor to the Norwegian Central Bank in the late 1990s, Dr. Cockburn co-organized the event that changed the software industry, the writing of the Manifesto for Agile Software Development (, generally just called the Agile Manifesto. He received his Dr. Philos. from the University of Oslo in 2003, the same year he organized the first Agile Development Conference.

Dr. Cockburn is considered the world's leading expert on the requirements gathering and process description technique called "use cases", with the best-selling book on the subject "Writing Effective Use Cases." He created the widely used software design pattern "Hexagonal Architecture" (, in in passing, collected and documented dozens of project management patterns and strategies. His work these days is Organizational Psychology, studying ways to help organizations grow closer together.

Consolidating his studies in organizational psychology and re-uniting the agile movement, Dr. Cockburn created the Heart of Agile, which consists of only four words: Collaborate. Deliver. Reflect. Improve. ( His current work is to help organizations of any type or specialty take advantage of what has been learned over the last decades.
