The Agile Practitioners Association of Nigeria, Nigeria’s largest Agile professional body, has concluded plans to host the 3rd edition of the Annual Agile Nigeria Conference 2020, with the theme “Accelerate Your Delivery”. This indication was given at a press conference organized on Saturday in Lagos. The event is scheduled to take place from Thursday 5th – Friday 6th March 2020 at the Leisure Building, Landmark Towers, 5b Water Corporation Drive, Oniru, Lagos.
The annual Agile Nigeria Conference is dedicated to furthering Agile principles and providing a venue for people and ideas to flourish. The main conclusions of the Agile Conference will be reflected and incorporated into the declaration of how Agile will help transform workplaces, businesses, and services as well as the adoption of Agile frameworks by the participants at the Conference.
Chief Executive Officer/Founder, The Agile Advisor Africa, Mrs. Abiodun Osoba, expressed delight at the emerging opportunities, growing appetite, and evolution of Agile in Nigeria.
She said the forthcoming 3rd edition of the Agile Nigeria Conference, comes on the heels of the hugely successful 2nd edition held recently in Lagos, which attracted over 100 executives, managers, software developers and researchers from over three countries who gathered to hear from recognized experts, authors, innovators and practitioners who offer their unique insight.
“This year’s conference promises to be bigger and better than its previous editions. We have lined up no fewer than 29 subject matter experts from within and outside of Nigeria as speakers. This conference, therefore, offers an unparalleled opportunity for participants to glean new ideas, share knowledge, and experiences on a truly international stage,” she assured.
She stated that the two-day conference is bundled as Agile DevOps Conference, for great thinkers interested in sharing thoughtful insights on the approach, technologies, and tools to develop, deploy and maintain software in Agile environments, while the Business Agility Conference is a revolutionary platform that brings together great speakers, cutting-edge Agile practices and exciting learning opportunities for any domain or industry.
The Agile Practitioners Association of Nigeria understands that Nigeria needs transformation in both the private and public sectors. This much-desired change can be achieved using the Agile Methodology, which allows a paradigm shift towards an innovative and problem-solving mindset.
Driven by market needs, customer expectations, and evolving technological innovation, today’s constantly changing business environment is forcing companies to adapt their Agile models of management and corporate governance—or risk being left behind. The Agile Practitioners Association of Nigeria, through its partners and members, provides the opportunity that will allow organizations to connect with other industry leaders and jointly share experiences and insights, helping all members and organizations to better navigate the emerging and complicated domain of business agility.
“Please permit me to on behalf of the management of The Agile Advisor Africa to extend our profound gratitude to all of our sponsors and partners for their immense contributions, support, and generosity. Without them, we would not have come so far, especially with regards to this conference,” she added.
The ability to quickly adapt is the lifeblood of modern enterprises, and our partnership with Agile professionals in Nigeria will complement our mission to help organizations innovate, improve productivity, and remain relevant in our rapidly changing world, the organization said.
