The Agile Practitioners Association of Nigeria, Nigeria’s largest Agile professional body, announced on Tuesday, February 22, 2022, plans to host the 5th edition of the Annual Agile Nigeria Conference 2022, themed “Continuous Improvement Strategies”.
While addressing the media, the association confirmed that this year’s conference would be a hybrid event (Physical and Virtual) and that participants can expect exciting and fully packed sessions, with no fewer than 30 seasoned subject matter experts from within and outside of Nigeria as speakers.
The conference is scheduled to take place from Tuesday, 1st to Wednesday 2nd March 2022 at Radisson Blu Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos.
The Agile Nigeria conferences are fun, super-creative, focused on bringing value to all her participants and this year’s conference will not be different.
Speaking on the forthcoming conference, the Chairman of the Agile Practitioner Association of Nigeria, Mrs. Abiodun Osoba, said it was in view of the period’s global realities brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic that the association made last year’s conference a virtual event and it turned out a huge success. For this year’s conference, she revealed that the event organizer decided to make the conference a hybrid event due to the restriction that has been lifted in most countries to enable attendees to partake either virtually or physically, adding also that all COVID-19 protocols will be observed for the safety of its members, expert facilitators and other participants who will be physically attending. “So, whether you’re with us in Lagos or joining from across the globe, you will have the chance to learn from experts, connect with the community, and leave inspired”, she assured.
She expressed confidence at the ample opportunities and benefits the conference presents to everyone, most especially the participants, in terms of improved levels of engagement, meaningful deliberations and discussions, real-time Q&A, amongst others.
The Chairman added that the forthcoming fifth edition of the Agile Nigeria Conference comes on the heels of the hugely successful fourth edition held last year from Monday, 1st to Wednesday, 3rd March 2021 which was online and attracted over 100 executives, managers, software developers and researchers from over four countries who gathered to hear from recognized experts, authors, innovators and practitioners who offered their unique insight.
This year’s event will not be different from the previous editions aimed at seeking emerging opportunities, growing appetite, and further driving the evolution of Agile in Nigeria.
“We will be introducing the Agile Games Night where participants will learn how Agile works through Agile Games Simulations. It promises to be an evening of fun,” she stated.
The annual Agile Nigeria Conference is dedicated to furthering Agile principles and providing a veritable avenue 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.
She stated that the two-day conference is targeted at individuals seeking professional development and aspiring to broaden their horizons in areas such as Agile leadership, Change Management, Agile Mind-Sets, Systems Thinking, and Agile Product Development amongst others.
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 adopt the 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.
“The ability to quickly adapt is the lifeblood of modern enterprises, and our partnership with Agile professionals in Nigeria and globally will complement our mission to help organizations innovate, improve productivity, and remain relevant in our rapidly changing world.
“Let me seize this opportunity to on behalf of the management of The Agile Practitioners Association of Nigeria 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 the quality and consistency of this annual conference,” she added.
