The Rise of Agile

Breakfast and Discussion Powered by Accenture and Mayer Brown

Today’s organizations are finding that their technology needs continue to evolve at a rapid pace to keep up with the ever-changing marketplace. More and more, companies are turning to an agile software development (“ASD”) methodology for rapid delivery of high-quality software, a business approach that aligns development with company goals.

Please join Accenture and Mayer Brown for an executive briefing to explore some of the specific challenges to and possible solutions surrounding the industry’s hottest trend. Topics to be discussed include: strategy development, risk and issue identification, contracting for ASD and preparing for a successful implementation. You’ll leave this session with insights that will help you achieve greater ROI from your organization’s agile initiatives.

  • A Pragmatist's View of Agile Software Projects
  • Contracting Process/Realizing Innovation
