Agile Austria 2021 Report
How flexible and iterative ways of working make companies and employees more resilient.
This was the topic of the Agile Austria Conference 2021.
After a break due to Corona, one of the most popular conferences on agile management methods, organised by JIPP.IT, BearingPoint, APUS and Parkside, took place again as an interactive online conference.
In addition to keynote speakers Sigi Kaltenecker and Sohrab Salimi, numerous representatives from mostly Austrian companies such as Raiffeisen, Dynatrace, Erste Bank, willhaben, Magenta Telekom and Österreichische Post used the conference as a stage for their presentations of case studies and master classes on the topic of agility.
“We need a new culture of relationships and vitality for our companies,” said guest speaker Univ.-Prof. DDr. Michael Lehofer in his speech.
With some 300 online participants, the conference was a huge success. One of the highlights – the online wine tasting, designed for networking – was a great opportunity for interesting discussions.
