We are still eager to run the AAC 2021. However, we are aware that the possibility of holding a conference on the planned date in April, at which we could meet each other in person, laugh, celebrate, discuss and exchange knowledge about our favorite topic "agility", is unfortunately not realistic.
But one thing is certain: We are going to host the AAC 2021, one way or another. We are currently exploring the possibilities and working on finding the best solution. Our desire to learn, teach, discuss and exchange our know-how is still burning.
What we know for sure: A modified version of the AAC will take place from October 14th – 15th, 2021. Stay tuned, we will contact you as soon as we have more information.
Your Agile Austria Conference Team
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!
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.
