A conference for
the leaders of
business agility

hosted by

A New Event.
A Different Conversation.

Elevate Agile is a one-day event that’s dedicated to elevating the topics of Agile Transformation and Business Agility beyond the realm of practices and bringing together the Leaders of Business Agility who have been charged with navigating the complexity of enterprise Transformation.

  • The Unpleasant Truth

    Agile has become a commodity and the community’s solutions are stale. Training, tools, and frameworks—they’re insufficient. And a culture-first Transformation isn’t the answer either.

  • Agile is Being Marginalized

    Organizations, especially large enterprises, are seeing diminishing returns on Agile and are less willing to invest in it because they don’t see it as a solution to their key business drivers.

  • Is This the End of Agile?

    It doesn’t have to be. For Agile to maintain its relevancy, the conversation has to be elevated beyond team-level activities and applied within the context of the entire enterprise.

  • Ushering in a New Era

    It’s time to take back the reins and thrust Agile back into the limelight as a first-tier solution to the business problems that large, complex organizations are facing.
