Jeff Dalton to Speak at Agile Development West Conference

WATERFORD, MI, May 2, 2014 -- Leading performance innovation expert Jeff Dalton, President of Broadsword Solutions, has been selected to speak on "Agile Resiliency" at the Agile Development Conference West. The conference will be held June 1-6 in Las Vegas, NV.

Mr. Dalton will present "Agile Resiliency:  How CMMI Will Make Agile Thrive and Survive." 

Large corporations and the Federal Government are increasingly directing software developers to "be agile," but their business practices related to marketing, procurement, project management, and systems definition are anything but. Mr. Dalton shares how agile resiliency can make the critical difference. Agile resiliency is about strengthening and reinforcing agile values, methods, and techniques so that agile can scale and thrive in this conflicted environment by integrating with the architectural strengths of the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI), a proven and widely adopted framework used to deploy a continuous improvement infrastructure. He shows how to use the CMMI's Generic Practices to scale and strengthen agile values, methods and techniques.

Mr. Dalton is a highly sought-after author, speaker, and performance improvement consultant whose talks on "Agile Resiliency" have been heard by audiences across North America and online.
