Traveling can often be exhausting and cumbersome. Just as the journey into agility, when we are about to introduce new ways of working, we face different kinds of challenges and changes in order to reach a certain point. Since the journey might have been long or exhausting, we often feel tired when we reach our final destination. But after we have recovered and are aware of the beauty of the destination, we tend to forget all the difficulties and our minds begin to focus on the new environment and our destination.We remember why we went on this journey. We are finally here - Destination Agile!You can expect these 5 Tracks at Agile Austria Conference 2020:

Road to Agile Nowhere.
Many of us have been on the agile road for quite a while. We have driven substantial changes and helped to create both better products and better workplaces. What did we learn so far? What are we busy with at the moment? Where are we headed to?
In my interactive talk I would like to share a few answers and explain why I see the risk of ending up in no-man´s-land. I will address a few roadblocks I have stumbled over such as the agile all-in-one-medicine, the Asterix paradox or the management bashing cult. And I will show how some of my clients have found their own destination in continuously improving employee happiness, customer satisfaction and profitability.

7 Lessons from Medicine on Building Healthy Organizations.
In my talk "7 Lessons from Medicine on Building Healthy Organizations" I want to outline the similarities that are required for becoming a healthy human being and for creating a healthy organization.
The talk will dive deeper into three key aspects of achieving organizational health, making a company more productive, more human, and more sustainable. Each lesson starts with a story from the world of medicine. Some stories are related to interactions with patients, some with colleagues, and some are related to ground-breaking medical research.
The key principles behind building healthy organizations are as simple as the principles behind becoming a healthy human being. The tough part is to do the things one wants to do.
