Innovate 2014, the IBM Technical Summit, is our annual conference for the practitioners and leadership within the product development and software delivery community. As leaders within this community, IBM looks annually to Global Rational User Community (GRUC) members to stand up and represent the community! This presentation outlines our plans for Innovate 2014 and outlines how you can participate in the conference as an invited speaker or as a registered attendee.

The Global Rational User Community welcomes your valuable feedback and encourages you to tell us what you would like to hear at Innovate 2014. You may also tweet your feedback and suggestions to Brian Bryson (@FreakingJenius).

  12. 12. 1. Measurable Results 2. Real Life Examples 3. No Infomercials 4. See the Big Picture 5. Speak to all Industries Five Ways to Increase Your Odds of Getting Accepted
  13. 13. 1. Measurable results  There is a big difference between saying “This worked for us” and “We achieved a 35% Return on Investment”.  Measurable results are a great way to prove the effectiveness of your strategies to your audience!
  14. 14. 2. Real Life Examples  There is no substitute for experience. Audiences love to hear directly from people who have implemented winning strategies. If you’re an IBMer or an IBM Business Partner, team up with a client to bring your story to life.  If you’re a client, dedicate some of your time to letting your audience know how things really worked, or didn’t!
  15. 15. 3. No infomercials  Infomercials are not welcome. Audiences want to learn how to be successful; if that includes a mention of a specific product or service, then great. If that focuses solely on a given product or service, then audiences will tune out. If you came to advertise, you should participate in our solution center.
  16. 16. 4. See the Big Picture  Software delivery is a team sport. And while your presentation may focus on a specific aspect of software delivery, it likely has impacts on other areas of, or individuals within, your organization.  Don’t forget about those impacts, tell us how you integrated and collaborated with other tools, areas or individuals. We want to understand the full impact of your strategies.
  17. 17. 5. Speak to Your Industry, Generalize for All  Sometimes your successful strategies will be dependent on circumstances unique to your organization.  Consider generalizing your guidance so that it will apply to others in similar industries or more generic situations.
