Our organization is also a proud sponsor of Agile Open Arizona, Agile Coach Camp conferences, and the Agile for Humanity Meetup Group in Tucson. We appreciate this proclamation for “Be Agile Week” for the week of March 11-16, 2019 from the city of Tucson, Arizona — it furthers our mission to support people who explore and apply Agile values, principles, and practices to make building software solutions more effective, humane, and sustainable.”
The 5 Saturdays STEAM program will benefit from donation gifts provided by the Agile Open Arizona attendees and a percentage of proceeds from the “Be Agile Week” events” said Dr. Dave, Founder of 5 Saturdays (www.5Saturdays.org). “The donations will support the launch of the 5 Saturdays program, May 2019 in Tucson, AZ.”

“Organizations are suffering from a lack of trust, and it's costing them speed, productivity, and collaboration. Our workshop focuses on what anyone can do about it by recognizing how your behavior is building trust--or not--and practice speaking hard truths so that others can hear it,” said Allison Pollard, Improving, Principal Consultant.
