Business Agility, 16-17 May 2019, Vienna

Business Agility Vienna is an intense 2-day conference focusing on business agility, including its applications in organisational design, policy innovation, and next-gen leadership.

We bring together awesome practitioners of business agility to share their experiences and the benefits their organisations have gained from exploring new and agile practices. We will host insightful and authentic talks and workshops in one of the premier locations in Vienna.

Our goals are to:

  • bring the local and international business agility community together in a friendly, educational and fun environment
  • increase the density of connections among the community and
  • exchange and explore ideas between professionals



Call for Stories

Our ‘Art of the Possible’ speaker stories are your awesome experiences with Business Agility in your organisation. All Stories are structured such that a Speaker has 18 minutes of presentation time. Q&A with Speaker and a hands-on Deep-dive are in addition to these 18 minutes.

What Makes a Great Story
At our core we are all storytellers, and great stories are crafted and refined. Here is what we’re looking for in your story:

  • A clearly identifiable Beginning, Middle, and End – If you don’t have a narrative, then it isn’t a story;
  • We can connect with it on an emotional level – The best stories are the ones where everything doesn’t go perfectly from the start. Show vulnerability. The audience will feel the struggle you went through and may be living it today in their organization. People hearing your story should be able to see themselves reflected in it;
  • Tension builds throughout the story – You’ll want to jump to the success and tell us all about how great the way of working is today. Don’t rush to the ending. Help your audience understand the mistakes, missteps, and learnings along the way. Not all stories will have a successful or happy ending; these stories are equally valuable for the lessons learned.
