A conference on agility in teams and companies

Overview of all tracks

Agility has many aspects, and that is exactly what we want to reflect in the T4AT. That’s why we are pleased to be able to offer you a wide variety of exciting topics again this year. No less than eight different content tracks are waiting for you – with some classic T4AT themes, but also new, little-known topics. These are:

Teamwork

This track is all about things that are helpful to agile teams in your everyday working life. From methodological frameworks such as Scrum and Kanban to moderation techniques in retrospectives, everything is possible. It would be particularly interesting to get a glimpse of how it is used in practice, which some of the speakers will surely do.

Leadership

Leadership – what does that actually mean? Good question, isn’t it? If you look in a dictionary, you might find the definition: “the action of leading a group of people or an organization.” So what does this mean in the context of an agile work culture? In this track, Jan Jung and Anna Werner from wibas would like to make this question tangible and discuss it with you.

Product Management

Agile product management, product ownership and projects – how do these all fit together? And how much ownership is in the DNA of product owners struggling with roadmaps and timelines these days? These are just two aspects of many that we want to explore in the Agile Product Management track. Jan Segers, a long-time product owner, is looking forward to your submissions and will get down to the nitty-gritty with you.

Note: The track will only take place on 30. November 2023.

 

at Scale

Nowadays, there are already quite a few agile teams. However, it often becomes problematic when you move into a large corporate context or when you are looking for broad support within the organization. This is where agile scaling frameworks offer ways to collaborate on projects, sometimes with hundreds of teams. These frameworks are also often criticized – especially because many see them as a blueprint and try to implement them 1:1. Track Chairs Felix Rüssel from KEGON and Peter Weingärtner from Seibert Media will help us to put together a good mix, which definitely takes a critical look at a few aspects, but also shows ways to gain insight and implement them in practice.

Modern Work

The Modern Workplace track includes everything that has to do with modern working methods. The last two years have brought lasting changes to the world of work, brought new issues, and given some topics different priorities. We look at ways to solve the issues and at case studies from the digital workplace world.

This track is particularly well-suited for corporate communications staff, but also for all agile and IT representatives in organizations.

Service Management

Service management is no longer just at home in IT. Many internal departments, including HR or marketing, offer various services in the company and also have to manage them. We would like to discuss where and how service-oriented teams are used when it comes to providing services effectively and in a customer-friendly manner. Where are there problems or hurdles? And on the flip side, what success stories do you have to share? Whether you’ve introduced a new tool or turned your processes inside out, share your experiences with us! We look forward to hearing from you.

Note: The track will only take place on 01. December 2023.

Agile Night

Culture Lounge

In the culture lounge we talk to people working in innovative, agile and pioneering organizations about the different aspects of corporate culture. Their ways of solving problems are often unconventional and unique. They report on their experiences, the advantages and challenges of such new organizational forms and methods, and what impact this can have on people and collaboration within the company. In our interview format, we provide an exciting, unfiltered insight into their world of thought, supplemented by questions from the audience.

NOTE: This track only takes place on-site at the Agile Night on 29/11/2013

Games

No one has to put up with boring, noisy workshops packed with slideshows that you don’t really learn much from anymore these days. Marc Bless and Dennis Wagner, the authors of the book “Agile Spiele – kurz & gut” (Agile games – short & sweet), host this track according to the motto: “Playfully achieve sustainable learning success”. The sessions range from trying out different agile games to basic facilitation techniques and professional debriefing of intensive agile simulations. Participants will learn many practical skills, as well as tips and tricks with which they can fill their toolbox for everyday life.
