Agile Open Arizona

We create space for people to actively engage to share ideas and knowledge transparently.  Topics are driven by the people attending the open space conference and attendees contribute at their own pace.

Why We are Doing This?

Open Space conferences existed for years.  This is an amazing way to build community and introduce people to lean thinking and agile practices.

Meet the Team

Our team is built with volunteers local to Tucson and other areas in the world.  We want to create a space where people can attend the Agile Open Arizona conference to learn new concepts and leave with the need for more.
