Conference in Washington, D.C. Features Best-Selling Authors and Recognized Experts in Business Strategy and Next-Generation Technology Adoption for Both the Private and Public Sectors

BOULDER, Colo., June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Rally (NYSE: RALY), a leading global provider of enterprise-class software and services solutions to drive business agility, will host the RallyON! 2014 conference this month in Washington, D.C.-an event that will bring together thought leaders and industry professionals to share proven strategies for increasing business agility, and remaining competitive and profitable in a rapidly changing market. This year's event centers around The Agile Impact: the impact of empowered teams, the quantified impact of Agile performance, and the global impact of a transformed organization.

The conference, being held June 9-11, places a unique focus on developing agility throughout an organization, from improving execution and innovation engines to creating and supporting adaptable business processes and cultures-all of which are required for a company to thrive in today's dynamic, hyper-competitive economy.

The conference will also shine a spotlight on how these best practices can be successfully applied to both the private and public sector, including federal and state government agencies. Related keynote topics include:

  • Big Bang Disruption: Best-selling author and industry analyst Larry Downes will discuss the development of business strategies in an age of constant technological disruption.
  • Adaptive Leadership: U.S. Ranger veteran and entertainer Keni Thomas, whose military and singing career have taken him from the firefight that inspired the book and movie Black Hawk Down to the Grand Ole Opry, will discuss the importance of leadership and a sense of duty, how organizations can inspire their team members, and how organizations can harness that to drive success.
  • Making Tough Decisions: Best-selling author of Switch, Made to Stick and How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work, and Senior Fellow at Duke University's CASE center, Dan Heath will discuss how people and organizations can overcome obstacles to decisiveness and more effective decision-making based on the latest research into individual and collective decision making.

"This is a must-attend event for anyone who wants to harness the power of business agility to remain competitive in a rapidly changing market, outpace competition to lead their industry, and to ignite transformation within their organizations," said Tim Miller, CEO and chairman of Rally Software. "Our agenda of speakers features experts who are highly accomplished in their fields and who will inspire attendees and give them compelling, actionable information to put to use in their own career and in their organization's everyday operations."

The conference also includes seminars and presentations on a breadth of topics, including:

  • Effective transformation of culture and resource planning to handle the era of disruption and rapid change that is now the norm for U.S. and global businesses alike.
  • Best practices for adopting Agile business practices in federal government agencies.
  • Customer stories about high-impact initiatives across a range of industries.

Rally will also host a series of supporting events in Washington, D.C. in the days surrounding the conference, including:

  • A Hackathon aimed at solving real-time user problems by pairing attendees with Rally's engineers to create the app you want to see in the Rally solution.
  • The Rally for Impact Scrimmage, where attendees can help several social impact organizations think through and tackle tough problems with technology and innovative solutions.  Tom Chi, Experience Lead at Google X and one of the minds behind Google Glass, will share methods for rapid prototyping during the event.
