Conference 2018

Corporate agility is more than the sum of agile team management methods and project management. Todays isolated applications with some agile projects and teams fall far short. This is why the Automotive industry is on the leap for agile@scale. The 4th Agile Automotive Conference discusses practical insights with scaling of agile methods and practices across the entire corporation. Get first-hand insights from E/E decision makers and learn from their real-life experiences.

In a highly depending industry cross-company agility requires a well-coordinated approach and a certain amount of standardisation. This is why the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) has established a new working group: The Agile Collaboration Working Group is the platform for automotive industry representatives to discuss agile topics. We’re pleased to announce the presentation of the WG at the Agile Automotive Conference 2018: Representatives from the car makers’ and the suppliers’ perspectives elucidate together the goals, activities and first results to the audience of the Agile Automotive Conference 2018.
