For the 4th time - in the green heart of Europe - an exciting, informative and educational conference on agility is taking place! Dear IT Project Managers, Product Owners, Scrum Masters, Software Architects, Agile Coaches, Decision Makers, Developers & Testers and anybody interested in topics around Agility - WELCOME!


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:
  • Agile Mind(Set)
  • Agile with a Smile
  • Agile Hangover
  • Agile Hangar
  • Open Track (New Experiment)

  • Keynote Speakers

    Keynote Announcement Sigi Kaltenecker 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.

    Sigi Kaltenecker is the joint managing director of Loop Consultancy based in Vienna. Since many years he works as a lean and agile expert for various enterprises such as bwinparty, Magna, Raiffeisen, REWE Digital, Swiss Railways or willhaben. Sigi is the co-creator of Enterprise Kanban and Flight Levels Coaching, authored Leading Self-Organising Teams and Self-Organising Enterprises, and co-authored Kanban Change Leadership (with Klaus Leopold).

    Keynote Announcement Sohrab Salimi 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.
    Sohrab Salimi is a Certified Agile Leadership (CAL) Educator, providing awareness for improved leadership competency and value delivery. Founder of Scrum Academy (the leading agile training and coaching company in Europe), co-developer of the Agile Leadership Journey (a collaborative community of agile leadership educators) and a Certified Scrum Trainer®. Highly devoted to providing strategic consulting and guidance to transforming the world of work.
