Jurgen Appelo

Leadership Expert

on how to bring your innovative idea
out on the street

Shakeup & Speedup - Shifting up the innovation funnel

Starting new teams and scaling up innovation is more important than ever. The key to success is applying different practices in different stages of the innovation lifecycle. What works for a new business does not work for a mature one, and vice versa. In this talk, we will nosedive into the major good practices for business leaders and product teams, from the moment they have an innovative idea to the day they will scale it up (or screw it up). Everything depends on the lifecycle stage of the new product or service.

Birgit Gebhardt

Trend Expert

on how your future leadership life
will look and feel

Leadership in a networked working culture

Imagine that we’d be already 10 years in the future with intelligent networking and agile leadership. And now you want to prove yourself, find solutions with your team, be affected by group dynamics, include top-notch expert knowledge, use simple apps and amazing visualization techniques while continuously boosting both your standards and curiosity. Doesn’t that sound amazing?

Trend expert Birgit Gebhardt takes you you into future times of leadership and company culture by exploring the next horizons of agile leadership and stimulating your motivation with hints of what will be possible and how to get there.

Matthias Strolz

Impact Entrepreneur & Serial founder

on how to successfully disrupt
and reinvent yourself

How to disrupt yourself

Keynote findet auf Deutsch statt

“Disrupt yourself or be disrupted”, sagte schon Cisco CEO John Chambers. Warum? Die Welt, in der wir heute leben ist VUKA geprägt – volatil, unsicher, komplex und ambivalent. Wenn wir uns negativen und destruktiven Dynamiken bewusst nicht hingeben wollen, müssen wir in unsere Entscheidungs- und Handlungsfähigkeit investieren. Wenn wir statt ohnmächtigen PassagierInnen die PilotInnen unseres eigenen Lebens sein wollen, müssen wir die Dynamiken proaktiver Disruption verstehen und für uns nutzen. Die Frage lautet also: Wie kann ich daran arbeiten, mich selbst immer wieder neu zu erfinden? Wie kann ich mein volles Potential entfalten? Matthias Strolz – Impact Entrepreneur und Seriengründer in Wirtschaft, Gesellschaft und Politik – präsentiert fünf Schritte für erfolgreiche persönliche Disruption und Entwicklung.

Toni Chung

Facilitation Expert

on how to tap into real empowerment
and commitment

How to facilitate empowerment

Talking about agile leadership or agile working tools, you often hear about autonomy, one’s own initiative and engagement as key factors for innovation and productivity within teams and organizations. But how to create an environment that really empowers teams and employees? How can you as a leaderactively work with dynamics between people, deal with insecurities and win a group of people for a shared vision and mission? Facilitation & innovation expert Toni Chung talks about facilitation skills and the importance of empowerment in change processes as a crucial missing link to agile tools and new work strategies that really have an impact.

Tina Deutsch

Co-Founder & Managing Partner

on how to be a role-model for your
and your company´s success

„We rise by lifting others“: A leader's impact on employees and how coaching can support

Because of their strong multiplier effect, team leaders and managers create a big impact on their organisations, colleagues and general environment. This impact implies a great challenge that all leaders face: engaging the people around them in a way that enables them to have a similar positive impact on their environment and to achieve big things together as a team.

In this session, we will take a closer look at how managers may use and strengthen their role in order to create both an environment that allows their employees to flourish as well as generate sustainable success for their organisation. We are looking forward to having an engaging session!

Marilena Maris

Executive Coach

on how to sky-rocket your
digital productivity

Productivity Rockstars®

The digital era brings us astonishingly powerful ways and tools to work and grow businesses, online and offline, any time, any place. Nevertheless we are constantly challenged by the downside of digitalization: we are hyper connected, always on, we usually deal with information overload and “burn out” became a “thing”.

Productivity Rockstars® is a new take on how we work in the digital era and how to make the best use of the powerful tools out there. It is designed as a guided approach towards sustainable growth and high performance and meant to empower leaders, knowledge workers, teams and organizations to simplify time, work smarter and grow in a sustainable, healthy way.

While there is no magic app or “3-step formula” towards digital productivity, Marilena Maris strongly believes that any one can become a Productivity Rockstar®.

Gunther Fürstberger

CEO MDI

on how to make your Agile Change Journey
a successful one

Creating Agile Change Journey

In the opening keynote, MDI CEO Gunther Fürstberger will approach the topic of leadership in the digital disruption by diving into both threats and chances the digitalization brings with it. Doing so he’ll let you participate in the ups and downs of MDI’s very own Agile Change Journey including: the unfortunate year 2016, agile kick-off, learnings alongside our transformation process, results so far and possible strategies for a successful future.

Dominik Etzl

MDI Solution Development

on how to lead with
vision and impact

Leadership Impact - The Currency of the 21st Century

We live in a time of many opportunities (internet of things, automatization, easy access to information, …). And also in a time of many challenges (climate change, artificial intelligence, migration, …). This is why leadership impact, the conscious and purposeful direction of our action’s impact, has become more important than ever. Correspondingly we see a new type of leaders emerge: Greta Thunbergs, Boyan Slats and Alexander Müllers. Vision and impact have become the currency and prerequisite in trade for high potential. What do digitalization and millennials have to do with it? And where as a leader can I start creating impact to succeed in the 21st century economy?
