In 2020 the eXperience Agile week will be a physical and an ONLINE conference!

In light of evolving uncertainties related to COVID-19, the decision has been made to create also an ONLINE version of the eXperience Agile week 2020 besides the PHYSICAL conference for who can attend the Lisbon conference. Our first priority is the health and safety of all.

Testimonials

"It’s been a real pleasure to attend eXperience Agile over several years now. Its well organised, has a diverse and well balanced set of speakers and it is one of the very few conferences where I make a point of trying to stay for the whole event, often as a keynote you are flying in and out but this event is worth staying for. It balances continuity with novelty which means it isn’t just other assembly of speakers but there is a sense of a faculty or community which has been built and that collective learning and experience feeds into the overall success of the event."

Also, bringing together new adopters, like me, with highly experienced professionals and people from different industries creates the ideal context, through informal relationships, for immersive sharing of advices and experiences."

Rui Lourenço,

"Agility, such a small word for a very big and needed transformation that starts with a first important step, our mindset.
The experience agile conference is a great opportunity to share knowledge, best practices and practices to avoid but above all it’s all about the experience, that will undoubtedly give you a push to your agile mindset towards agility."
