AGL at the 2016 California Technology Forum

AGL at the California Technology Forum

I have the pleasure of participating on a panel discussion at the California Technology Forum on August 11 in Sacramento.

My session, “Examining California’s Agile Strategy,” is at 12:30 p.m., and I’ll talk about the work I’m doing with Agile Government Leadership and all of the strides to overcome risk and culture shifts that government agile practitioners are actively doing.

The conference is at the Sheraton Grand Sacramento and will be a full day of interesting sessions on how California is using technology. Session topics include agile, human centered design, open source and cybersecurity.

If you want to meet and discuss how we can work together, share ideas from panel and learn how to get involved with AGL, connect with me via email at [email protected].

I hope to see you there!

About the Author:

Elizabeth Raley joined CivicActions in 2010 as an Agile Project Manager and Quality Assurance guru and became Director of Professional Services in 2014. She excels at bringing balance, facilitating change, encouraging growth, and empowering people.

Elizabeth uses her Agile coaching and people skills to keep CivicActions’ team members present and productive, and her project management skills to help keep projects running transparently and smoothly. As the PM on a collaboration platform project for a large federal agency, she has led a team of 10+ engineers and user experience professionals through countless successful releases. Other projects that have benefited from Elizabeth’s enthusiasm and attention to quality include the Department of Defense, the City of Los Angeles, C2ES, Denver Public Library, EatFresh (San Francisco Human Services Agency), FosterClub, GlobalMDP Program (Columbia University), Netpop, and SACNAS.

Elizabeth is also on the steering committee of Agile Government Leadership (AGL), which is a community-powered network of agile professionals working to bring an iterative, user-focused approach to government project management. There she works with other members of the committee organizing and strategizing, creating course content and reaching out to other leaders in the agile community to participate and share their knowledge in order to propagate agile in government.

Prior to working at CivicActions, Elizabeth spent five years at the software company Casting Networks as Director of Project Management. There she helped form the PM and QA group along with introducing and implementing Agile methodologies.

Speaking about Agile is always of interest to Elizabeth and she has been fortunate enough to do so at the California Technology Forum 2016, FedScoop’s Lowering the Cost of Government w/ IT Summit 2016, Drupal GladCamp 2014, the Community Media Drupal Summit 2012, and Drupalcon Chicago 2011. She also moderates a monthly webinar, AGL Live.

Elizabeth earned her BFA at Wayne State University and is also a certified ScrumMaster. She lives in Los Angeles and spends her free time practicing yoga, reading the funnier side of the internet or hanging out with her favorite people: her family.
