Welcome Message from Conference Co‐Chairs

On behalf of the Conference Planning Committee, we warmly welcome you to participate in the 18th Annual MWAIS Conference. The conference theme-Thriving with Agile- recognizes the 20 years since the publishing of the Agile Manifesto. Thus, the conference theme has been carefully chosen to mark such a milestone of the information systems community. We are privileged to be co‐chairs of this important conference.

Over the last 18 years, MWAIS members have made tremendous contributions in research, teaching and practice, resulting in impacts in many sectors of society. At this conference we celebrate what we as information systems faculty and professionals have achieved in furthering knowledge, skills, and ability in the discipline.
