The heart of Agile People Sweden is all the participants and what we create together during the conference day. The interaction by sharing thoughts, input and ideas is key to an inspiring and successful conference.

- “Many agile conferences are more technically oriented. Agile People Sweden is a progressive conference on Agile HR and leadership, with questions related to where we are going, and how we can create organizations that face the future. We want to communicate passion and a sense of ”wow, this was something new.” We are arranging the conference that we ourselves have lacked and would like to go to” says Katarina Starendal, one of the organizers. With agile values together we can create organizations that are more competitive and fit for the future and for human beings. Come and get inspired!
