Agile Open Iowa


Have you ever wanted to create your very own conference filled with fascinating sessions focused on the topics that most interest you? Have you ever hoped to find a safe place to engage in a deep discussion with experts on a topic that you are just starting to learn? Welcome to the 2nd annual Agile Open Iowa event, hosted in Des Moines, IA on November 8, 2019. This isn’t a traditional conference! There are no keynote speakers or PowerPoints!

Using the Open Space Technology (OST) approach, this event encourages agile practitioners to self-organize around topics that are most important to them. Attendees with common issues and interests share their experiences and learn from others. There is no preset agenda for the event; rather, sessions are created “live” by the participants at the start of the day. Click here for a short video on Open Space Technology

Plan to spend a full day connecting with others who share your passion and are willing to take responsibility for what they believe in and care about around following a path to agility.

In order to get the most out of this event, please come prepared with topics that are of interest to you, either to learn more about or to share your experiences.
