Trail Ridge Clients at Agile2009

I am fortunate to have worked (and continue to work) with many excellent companies that have come to know, live and breath agility. This year, two of them are speaking at the Agile 2009 Conference in Chicago. has been well played on the public scene over the past two years, but this year we have a couple of new topics to explore from Catherine Connor and Eric Babinet. I highly recommend their talks from the experience they have had in growing their agility practice from just over 200 people in 2007 to well over 800 today! That includes agile transitions for IT and Technical Operations in addition to the growth in Research and Development.

McKinsey & Company

McKinsey & Company is relatively new on the public agility sector, but has been practicing agility for a few years now within their IT Application Development and Support Organizations. They have two excellent talks this year based on specific projects they lead internally. Both projects took a very creative, culturally sensitive, and agile approach to re-thinking quality and support. If you are looking for ways to improve either within your organization, these talks/papers are a must see/read.
