The Agile Tour Vienna is a non-profit event that brings together experts, practioners and anyone else interested in agile software development.
We are looking to find the perfect balance between international experts on Agile Development and practitioners from the local community.
The primary conference language is German, but we also welcome talks in English and look forward to exchanging ideas and insights with international participants.
We invite all agile practitioners to present your talks at the Agile Tour Vienna 2019. In the previous years we had a good mixture of German and English talks, so contributions in both languages are welcome.
The Call for Proposals for the main track is open until Sunday, 30 June 2019.
The Call for Proposals for the "Young Talents" track is open until Saturday, 1 June 2019.
The Review Team will finish the selection of talks for the "Young Talents" track by the middle of June, and for the main track by middle of July. Everyone who submitted a proposal will be informed once the decision is final. Speakers will receive a free ticket for the Agile Tour Vienna 2019. The Agile Tour Vienna is a non-profit community event which aims to keep ticket prices low. Therefore, it is not possible to cover travel expenses or pay a speaking fee.
The conference takes place on Friday, 20 September 2019.

Two things are new this year:

Are you tired of having to always have all the answers? Does worrying about whether you will get the deliveries you need sap your energy and brain space? Are you running into roadblock after roadblock with your people and projects? The problem isn’t your leadership, it’s your leadership paradigm. Over and over again, we’ve been told that leaders get people to do things and they try hard to do that. The problem is that approach doesn’t work when it comes to thinking. Instead, what you end up doing is stealing away people’s ownership which leaves you more and more overwhelmed and makes them less and less engaged.details
