World Agility Forum
Around the world companies are reinventing themselves so they can innovate more effectively. This transformation is called Agility. The World Agility Forum held in Lisbon will bring together top companies, their leaders, and leading Agilists to explore the challenges and celebrate the success of Agility. The highlight of the day is the gala dinner that celebrates those people and organizations that have benefited from applying the Agile mindset to their business and culture.
Agile Human Factors
Agile is undoubtedly connected to information technologies and hardly ever ran away from this concept but … it’s teamwork that remains the ultimate competitive advantage. Yes, culture makes us different, and technology make us the same, and this conference is a turning point to all of us to understand that mixing this two ingredient leads to innovation and creativity. The Agile Human Factors conference wants to respond to these challenges using the techniques of teamwork: 1- Leadership 2- Psychological safety 3- Flow 4- Cognitive Bias 5- Continuous Feedback
