About Us

Our Goal

The goal of PittAgile is to build and support the Agile tribe by focusing on both the personal and professional side of people. With the highest measure of success being when our tribe experiences the joy of using their Agile knowledge and craftsmanship to support and improve the people, products, businesses and communities they touch.

Why?  We believe people are most important.  Agile works because of people.  Organizations prosper with good people - at all levels.  Communities grow when good people care for other people.  People are most important.  

Who We Are

We are a passionate group of practitioners who love our craft.  We are community-run and driven; If you believe in continuous learning and improvement, we welcome you to this group and invite you to contribute!

Our History

Jon Stahl, founder and CEO of LeanDog and originally from Pittsburgh, has long been a strong proponent of Lean/Agile practices. While on a business trip in Pittsburgh, Jon realized there
was not a strong Agile community. If nature abhors a vacuum, so does Jon. He promptly created the Pittsburgh Agile Meetup group. Jon scheduled the first PittAgile Meetup on April 8, 2011.

Jon had stepped back and allowed us to self organize.  Twelve years later we have over 2400 members, met over 132 times and hosted three regional conferences. We have partnered with multiple corporations and organizations representing diverse domains such as Development, QA, HR, Marketing, Business Analysis and Project Management.

We have brought some of the best Agile speakers to our Southwestern Pennsylvania community sourced locally and from around the country and the world. By doing so, we have helped to make people personally successful and implement Agile in every part of their organization.
