Attending Mile High Agile is an investment in skill building, professional development, and working relationships.
But a lot of attendees don’t buy their own tickets—most need to convince someone else (their boss) of the value. So we’ve developed materials to help you demonstrate to your employer just how valuable it would be to attend Mile High Agile. We’ve kept the materials brief to make it easy for you; a program summary, a highlight of the value, and a letter (email) template to send to your employer.
The Front Range is home to some of the Agile Community’s top thought leaders, as well as some of the most successful agile companies – large and small. They all gather each year for the hometown conference that’s been expanding to attract top speakers and leaders from around the country.
You will learn from the best about the latest agile techniques and practices, to help your team and org leverage modern ways of working to build better products, better software, and better businesses. The conference is also a great opportunity for business, networking, contributing and learning.

Mile High Agile 2020 has a track to serve you:
Our theme this year is “Transforming Us”. When we talk about change, it’s often easy to talk about what ‘they’ need to do. We’re going to focus on ourselves and how each individual and team can take accountability. We’ll look at how we can make shifts in culture, our viewpoints, and our individual practices to transform how we work and deliver.
This year we have organized into 3 Tracks:
- Evolving the System
Big change doesn’t have to start with a big bang. There’s wisdom in understanding where you’re at, starting with small changes, and paying attention to what the system encourages and discourages. An evolutionary approach can lead to long lasting change.
- Human Needs of Teams
We inherently know that humans and culture matter immensely in any great effort. This track focuses on those aspects of agility that create and support healthy culture and individuals, evolving leadership styles, absorbing fast-paced change, autonomy and self-organization, inclusive facilitation, psychological safety, sustainable pace, and other related topics. Being part of a high-performing, healthy team can be one of the most rewarding experiences a person can have – this track aims to grow more of these teams!
- Great Ideas to Great Outcomes
We’ll learn how to use new practices and perspectives to advance our product management mindset from managing details to delivering value.
