"Dedicated to understand how management itself is being re-imagined and how digital transformation is changing everything"
Prepare to ignite your passion at The World Agility Forum, a unique conference ready to make you a catalyst for change! This conference starts with the Leadership & Management (September 22nd & 23rd), where we challenge the traditional concept of management and leadership and explore how successful companies are pushing the boundaries to reimagine the way they work. This energy then shifts to Human Science (September 25th) , exploring human elements as a key part in reimagining organizations, and pursuing to achieve better goals. As the reimagination unfolds, people will need to Reimagining the Way of Working (September 26th) and the relationship with Agile principles, processes and practices bringing to the forum the themes of Business Agility , Technical Agility and Agile Across Organizations . With keynote speakers, panels, and workshop sessions, you'll gain new perspectives and the tools to revolutionize your organization.
The Reimagination of Management in the Digital Age is about bringing agility for your Organization's deepest challenges
22nd Sep - 09:00 AM to 06:00 PM
23rd Sep - Masterclass - 09:30 AM to 12:30 AM
Top managers are realizing that success in the Digital Age requires a fundamentally different way of thinking and managing. The Reimagining Management Day is showcasing notable special guest decision-makers who are reimagining management in their contexts. The Forum is followed by a Masterclass on Reimagining Management, led by Steve Denning and his colleagues, to explore multiple facets of this (r)evolution of reimagining management. Let's join the movement toward a better future and reimagine management.
REIMAGINING HUMAN FACTORS
25TH Sep - 09:00 AM to 06:00 PM
Despite numerous great thinkers advocating for creating excellent workplaces over the last century, only a few big organizations are implementing these insights across their entire organization. But why is this the case? Join us on the second day to explore the reasons behind this disconnect between the principles that are professed and the ones that are practiced. We'll delve deep into the root cause and examine various team problems related to factors such as Psychology Safety, Leadership, Neuroscience, and Communication Skills, exploring different opportunities to improve these.
26TH Sep - 09:00 AM to 06:00 PM
Bringing the “better ways” of working that were brought by the Agile Manifesto to the management of entire organizations has rarely been successful. On day three, get ready to get your hands dirty and learn to code without any bugs get the best tips and tricks from the experts of the best software development practices in the Technical Agility track, take the first steps into an agile organization, and learn how to start right away in the Business Agility track, and how can companies cooperate in better ways, and get better results with Agile, in the Agile Across Organizations track.
Join us in Lisbon
Let's Reimagine the Way we Work, together!
The question shifts from “Why do we have to change?” to: “Why can’t we have what they’re having?”
Top managers increasingly realize that success not only needs a fundamentally different way of managing: some are starting to see that they too will have to change. Within many large organizations, fruitful discussions are occurring. There are often significant islands of change advocates. For some, the shift is non-negotiable. If the firm won’t support change, the best talent goes elsewhere.
There is increasing recognition that the new way of running organizations is more than a set of tools.
It’s about conveying meaning that reveals our deepest values, our very core, as human beings. It entails a different state of mind that starts with a change of heart.
Discussions within firms tend to proceed slowly, as this is a massive re-imagining of the traditional principles of management. The changes cut deep. Yet anecdotal evidence suggests that leaders who are succeeding discover that it gives them the chance to live and lead with satisfaction and even joy in their work. They think and feel differently about their organization and their lives.
Thus, the new way of getting things done is a transformative idea. Like all transformative ideas, it creates a way of evaluating other ideas. It offers a way out of many practical, financial, economic, social, political, and ethical dilemmas of our time. It establishes criteria by which goals can be set and progress measured. Instead of offering a jigsaw puzzle of little fixes, it provides a broad theory of how organizations—and society—can function for the better.
It is also the fact that the processes of traditional management work like a immune system of the human body.
If you make a change (improvement) in one process, e.g. HR, then the other processes of the firm (eg budget, strategy, finance) will kick in and say “that’s not how we do things around here” and so the change is likely to be hampered or blocked.

What are people saying about us:
The name eXperience Agile uses the right word in the title! A wonderfully exciting and immersive experience, supported by a very experienced team who catered equally to the needs of the participants and speakers with practised ease. All the speakers provided extremely valuable insights into the requirement for agile thinking in our modern, challenging work environments, others provided examples of how agile thinking has made significant impacts on such environments - and how it positively impacts the lives of those working there - while others shared extraordinary possibilities for the future using this approach, regardless of industry. Thank you for the opportunity to meet other thinkers, to speak to your community, and to envision a world where we all flourish using agile thinking. Thank you to the organisers, eXperience Agile (XA) for this extraordinary event!
