ICR Agile is a one day event to bring together members of the agile community and those interested in embracing the agile mindset to learn and network with peers.
Agile is a way of thinking about how we work. It enables people to solve complex and adaptive problems by collaborating. Agile addresses the types of problems many organizations struggle to solve today. It is used by leading companies nationally and locally as a way to move their businesses forward.
This conference is a collaboration between NewBoCo and members of Eastern Iowa Agile.
**ICR Agile is going virtual in 2021!**
Join us for a full day of Agile presenters, panels, and workshops!
Are you or someone you know an ideal fit for ICR Agile? We’d love to hear your ideas for sessions!
