  • The theme for Agile Munich 2019: Agility at Scale

    'You are as effective as your weakest Agile function'

    The theme: Agility at Scale

    Agility at Scale is about your company's ability to adapt in today's fast changing economy. The challenge is of course, that your company exists of many different functions, like Sales, Marketing, IT, who are all on a different level of Agile maturity. And this means that your company's Agility is only as effective as its weakest function! It is therefore to no surprise, that true Agile companies develop Agility across all of its functions. And preferably in alignment. Let's explore together Agility throughout the company and learn from one another. Let's explore Agility at Scale.


    For this event, speakers and companies are invited who have truly raised the Agility bar in functions like IT, HR, Finance, Sales & Marketing and Management. We also look strategically; how do we prepare our next generation to flourish in the Agile company.


    The event starts with talks, followed by an Open Space in which the speakers participate (so that you can interact with them) and finishes with an optional Master Class.

    Our Audience

    Our typical conference participants are today's leaders, managers, directors and board members, but also for those interacting with the leaders (e.g. Change Managers, IT leads, Product Owners, HR leads, Finance leads, Marketing directors, Teachers and Trainers etc.)


    As the theme of this year is Agility at Scale, we expect participants from all functions, e.g. Marketing & Sales, HR, Finance, IT, etc. And we also expect participants from the Educators, as we will be discussing about how we can prepare our next generation to thrive in the Agile company.

    Reasons to Attend

    'insights for agile transformation and inspiring talks with agile & sympathic people' - Katja Bauer


    And if you want to know if we are good at bringing an Agile community together, please get inspired by this LinkedIn testimonial and associated video clip:


    'This marks the days that I truly understand and felt that the Agile mindset is something that you need in order to BE Agile and not DO Agile. Since that moment, we've changed our way of hiring, adapted our Agile Awareness Sessions. We're even working on a "Leadership Pill", in which we incorporate all learnings with regards to the mindset and culture shift in one session. Nils Oud, MBA thanks for the amazing days and see you next year!'

  • Open Space, Lightning Talks and Gamification

    Open Space

    A massive amount of learning. 12 Different sessions to choose from.

    If this is the first time you are attending an Open Space event, you will not only learn about Leading your Agile Transformation, but also see a powerful tool to conduct meetings of pretty much any size.


    Often nicknamed as “Unconference”, the style and format of an Open Space event is uniquely different. Through pure self-organization, Open Space brings agile values to life and it does not come as a surprise that the Agile Alliance created an initiative for open space adoption and hosts their own event using this style world-wide.


    Walk away with proceedings, an artifact that will capture our decisions, findings and recommendations.

    Lightning Talks

    The lightning talks are concise and efficient with the intend to grab the attention of the audience.

    Lightning talks are designed to be short presentations. The talks are brief which requires the speaker to make their point clearly and rid the presentation of non-critical information. This causes the audience to be more attentive to the speaker and gain a broader array of knowledge from the presentations given.


    It is a fun way to understand and learn complex situations. Things to take with you when returning to your company.

    Gamification techniques are intended to leverage people's natural desires for socializing, learning, mastery, competition, achievement, status, self-expression or simply their response to the framing of a situation as game or play. The gamification of learning is an educational approach to learn by using game elements

    Package Deal

    Perform our Agile Maturity Assessment and follow through with complementary tickets. For more information, see the next section.

  • Complementary tickets with our Agile Assessment

    With our Agile Maturity Assessment Framework we assess the current state of your Agile Maturity and then jointly conclude areas for improvement. One of the options is to follow through with our Organizational Agility Program. Once your improvements are implemented, we can repeat the assessment to see “if you moved the needle”.

    As explained in one of our Use Cases, we start our Agile transformation with a thorough assessment.


    Typically, Jochen Krebs and/or Nils Oud assesses the current state of the company and explore the company's Agile possibilities and ambitions. Then we deliver a future Agile organizational blueprint, including a plan how to achieve that blueprint.


    'As this step is normally followed with an inspirational story building event in the company, it only make sense to invite you to one of our exciting Agile events: Agile Munich, Agile Amsterdam or Agile New York'.

  • The Venue for Agile Munich 2018

    Münchner Künstlerhaus

    Agile Amsterdam 2017 - An Agile Leadership Conference

    Münchner Künstlerhaus

    Lenbachplatz 8 Munich

    “The house shall be a meeting place for all artists of Munich, a center of cheerfulness, advice and serious deed”, said the charter which was read at the groundbreaking ceremony of Münchner Künstlerhaus in 1893 and which was then sealed in the foundation stone.


    The Muenchner Kuenstlerhaus is a central element in the history of Munich. And within walking distance of e.g. the Marienplatz!

    Agile Amsterdam 2017 - An Agile Leadership Conference

    The Rooms

    Rooms that inspire

    The Künstlerhaus has many beautiful and versatile rooms. And this is ideal for Agile Munich 2018, where we scale from an all-together gathering at the key note and the start of the Open Space, towards break-out rooms for the Open Space sessions and on Friday to smaller, modern rooms for the Master Classes.


    Some of our drinks will be in the Foyer with magnificent vaulted ceilings. Check out the website for more pictures.


    Enjoy the city in Spring

    Munich, Bavaria’s capital, is home to centuries-old buildings and numerous museums. The city is known for its annual Oktoberfest celebration and its beer halls, including the famed Hofbräuhaus, founded in 1589.


    In the Altstadt (Old Town), central Marienplatz square contains landmarks such as Neo-Gothic Neues Rathaus (town hall), with a popular glockenspiel show that chimes and reenacts stories from the 16th century.
