      Inaugural Agile Special Interest Group (SIG)
      eXoftware and Best Outcomes, with the support of the Agile Alliance
      and the DSDM Consortium have organised the inaugural Agile Special
      Interest Group (SIG) to be hosted by IONA. This is a merging of the
      XPSIG and the DSDM Regional Interest Group (RIG).


      Thursday, 15th May at 6:00pm, beer and pizza provided

      IONA facilities in Dublin - Shelbourne Road, Ballsbridge, D4

      To learn more about Agile Methods, and how they can support rapidly
      changing business needs.


      "Putting the Agile SIG in context"
      Hugh Ivory, Managing Director, Best Outcomes
      In this short presentation Hugh will give an overview of the
      evolution of the Agile SIG. Hugh will take a look at the advances
      in Agile methodologies over the past number of years. This should
      ensure that we are all starting from a common understanding.

      Hugh Ivory is the Managing Director of Best Outcomes, a
      consultancy specialising in Project and Programme Management.
      Best Outcomes' core competence is in the use of Agile Methods to
      align Process and People, enabling effective Business Change.

      Hugh has spent over twenty years in IT within the Financial
      Services Industry. He is a Certified DSDM Practitioner, and the
      Co-ordinator of the DSDM Irish Regional Interest Group.

      "AIB and Agile Methods supporting Business Goals"
      Paul Verjans, Snr Manager, Development Support and Quality
      Assurance, AIB Bank
      Paul will discuss the Change Process Improvement Programme for
      which he is responsible at AIB. He will explain the business
      drivers for the Programme, and how the required changes have been
      prioritised, and implemented on an ongoing basis. He will
      describe how AIB has `customised' some Agile methods to suit
      its business goals, and its organisation and culture.

      "The Story of a Story"
      Seán Hanly, Managing Director, eXoftware
      When discussing eXtreme Programming it is sometimes difficult
      to explain how a requirement is tracked from initial requirements
      through to implementation. Using a real user story from a current
      eXoftware development project, Sean Hanly will give the "story of
      a story" - from initial user story presentation, estimation,
      scheduling, delivery of acceptance tests, and implementation
      through "Test Driven Development".
