Business Agility Conference - Melbourne, 16, 17 September 2019

An intensive, two-day learning experience featuring short stories and facilitated deeper conversations on business agility; including agile outside IT, organisational design, market disruption and product innovation, and next-gen leadership.

Join us for the next edition of an Australian conference unlike any other.

The Business Agility Conference is an intensive, two-day conference of authentic stories and facilitated conversation on business agility; including agile outside of IT, organisational design and product innovation to next-gen leadership.
The conference brings together some of the region’s best thought-leaders and practitioners of business agility to share their experiences and the benefits their organisations have gained from exploring agile practices.

What makes this conference unique?

The conference is highly interactive and features facilitated learning groups. All attendees will be seated together in one room for two days. Each day will be split into 3 topics with three, 18-minute “art of the possible” case studies, followed by 40 minutes of facilitated, hands-on engagement.

The conference is designed so that participants spend 50% of their time networking and learning from each other through these hands-on, “deep-dive” sessions.
