  • The Agile Munich Agenda for 2019

    Agility at Scale? Not without the supporting functions!

     

    Supporting functions such as HR, Finance & Control or Logistics are deeply committed to keeping the organization around them healthy and well-serviced. When that organization starts working Agile, the relationship between the supporting functions and their stakeholders changes. Their services are valued differently, a new kind of performance is expected, and the conventional approach may come under pressure. This relationship - between supporting functions and the increasingly Agile organization - is the core theme for 2019’s Agile Munich, Germany.

     

    Incrementor and Gladwell Academy welcome Agilists and many other professionals to this enlightening event.

    Voices from the field

    "Despite the inherent complexity, it is only when the supporting functions adopt business agility that transformations accelerate. Respondents to the survey have identified Finance, HR and Compliance as the three most important areas for their business Agility transformation."

    - Business Agility Report, 2018

     

    "Because HR touches every aspect—and every employee—of an organization, its agile transformation may be even more extensive (and more difficult) than the changes in other functions."

    - Harvard Business Review, 2018

    Who should attend?

    We're aiming for a heady mix of business leaders, professional Agilists and of course professionals from the various supporting functions: HR, Learning and Development, Finance & Control, Marketing...

     

    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.

    Why you should go

    • Better than any formal training. Get tomorrow's training from today's leading voices.
    • Connect with expert speakers in the field of Agility and Agile Organizations.
    • Learn from Agile companies such as BOSE. Their move into a tribe structure has scaled Agility throughout their entire organization.
    • Subsequent Master Classes. More enrichment and take-away's for your company.
    • Unique fun and interactive Warm-Up evening with Niels Pflaeging.
    • Enjoy 3 days in Munich, capital of Bavaria, arguably Germany's most jovial state.

    Voices from the 2018 edition

      - Timo Toivonen

  • Cool stuff

    Open Space, Workshops and Lightning Talks.

    Open Space

    A massive amount of learning. Many 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.

    Workshops

    Take advantage of the workshops delivered by the most respected speakers and trainers around

    Short workshops are given around the theme of Scaling Agility. There will be 2 workshops to provide introduction to the scaling frameworks of SAFe and Nexus. Niels Pflaeging delivers a workshop that always inspires controversy thinking - be prepared to be challenged! Another exciting workshop is in the works and will be revealed soon.

    Lightning Talks

    Short presentations - different areas of interest!

    Lightning talks are designed to be short presentations. Lightning talks are brief which requires the speaker to make their point clearly and rid the presentation of non-critical information. The goal of lightning talks is to articulate a topic in a quick, insightful, and clear manner. These concise and efficient talks are intended to grab the attention of the audience, convey key information, and allow for several presenters to share their ideas in a brief period of time

  • Expand your learning by following one of our several Master Classes

    Stay tuned as we publish our Master Classes over the next months.

    Please note that you don't have to chose now; you can do that up to one week before the event.

    Use the power of the Liberating Structures to fuel your Agile Transformation. Use LS to further scale Agility into your organization.

    By Jochen Krebs

    Inspired by complexity science and developed by Henri Lipmanowicz and Keith McCandless, LS helps you address some of the most challenging aspects of working together while supporting human development.

     

    In this Master Class we explore the concept and intend of LS and how it can help you to spread Agility throughout your organization. We will learn how Liberating Structures foster more self-organization, ownership and accountability. We will be doing this by practicing them while learning about scaling agile processes. You will walk away from this masterclass with a better understanding of addressing challenges in large-scale structures AND learning about the underlying techniques. It’s a two for one; theoretical and practical, but above all fun and hands-on.

  • The Venue for Agile Munich 2019

    The Münchner Künstlerhaus is dependent on sponsoring.

    Agile Munich 2019 directly contributes to preserving this beautiful historic building

    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.

    Munich

    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.
