First of all, thanks to everyone for the great conversations and swapping of ideas that have been so helpful in finding new ways to design how we interact with each other.
Would you like to continue those conversations? I will be present (and in most cases presenting) at the events below. So drop me a line and let’s try to connect.
See you there!
Modern Requirements Engineering, Berlin.
25th – 27th of September
My colleague and good friend Oliver Zilken (@OZilken) and I will deliver a Keynote at this upcoming conference in Munich. Our topic deals with how our company managed to organize the strategic planning process in a modern, agile way: 45 teams – most cross-functional – covering every area of our e-commerce business. Modern Requirements Engineering? We’ve taken away the top-down “directives” – they have been replaced with a customer focused overall vision and road-map, the requirements are derived bottom-up from the very people who are to deliver the necessary customer-value. Self-Organized, structured, adaptive.
Manage Agile Conference 2018
Once again, it’s back – one of the best conferences in Germany dealing with Agility in the bigger context of how organizations can find more modern ways of working which are more inclusive, creative, customer focused, and capable of delivering quick and constant customer value.
Really looking forward to this year’s conference and all the familiar and new faces!
I will be presenting the Topic of Upscaling Culture…
Agile Digital Transformation, March 20 – 22 2018, Munich
A new conference from the people at HLMC Events which looks to be very promising. Alongside the usual plethora of talks and presentations, there will also be workshops and a great opportunity to network with others (and maybe even to get some #freehugs).

Here you can find an excerpt of the topic I will be discussing (it’s in German, but hey – Google Translate does an amazing job these days ;-))
Manage Agile 2017
At this conference, which took place from November 13th to 16th 2017 in Berlin, I presented (once again) the ideas around one of my favorite questions at the moment – and that is: can we have a self-organizing environment that is completely free of rules and structures – or even decision makers? My answer is: you gotta have rules if you want to be free.. So many interesting discussions, panels, workshops and keynotes. And by the way: this was one very incredible conference – so many people came together and had some very fruitful conversations.

Re-Inventing Organisations Conference 2017, Sofia Bulgaria
We are constantly evolving – not just in nature, but in the workplace as well.

I will be presenting at this conference in Sofia, Bulgaria from November 22nd to 23rd 2017. Would love to see you there and engage in great sharing experiences.

Hacking HR Barcamp at Sipgate
Many thanks to the team at sipgate for this incredible “non-conference” where we had a great opportunity to share with people from diverse companies. The main questions we tackled where around the topics of becoming modern organisations that rely much more on helping people find their purpose and moving boundaries.
