As businesses move to agile methodology, communications professionals face new challenges. Although many books and articles describe agile, few meet the needs of technical writers, documentation managers, and other professionals in our field.

The STC Agile SIG provides a place where technical communications professionals can share agile experiences and ideas. This SIG is open to technical communicators who work in agile or who are interested in learning more about agile. Our goals are to:
• Provide a forum to exchange information and facilitate discussion.
• Discuss ideas, solve problems, and share resources to assist in agile adoption.
