The Tools4AgileTeams conference will be held over two days again in 2019. Agile@night is planned for the first day of the conference with games and workshops. Day two is the actual conference day with presentations.
The final program details will be available in summer 2019.
The Call for Sessions runs from mid-March to mid-June.
Topic 2019: Tools and leadership
Leadership requires in-person conversations, and tools are for digital communication. If we categorize these two terms, they don’t seem to have much in common. But are they really so separated? In scaled agile practice, further questions quickly arise: Do tools and leadership always into conflict in theory or in practice, or perhaps both? Should they really be considered separately? Are there any synergies we can take advantage of? Can tool actually support leadership? Can leadership in turn have a meaningful effect on tools?
We want to discuss this and more at Tools4AgileTeams 2019!
