About the keynote:

Bye, bye Project Manager - Is Agile Disrupting Project Management?

For projects like building a power plant or a train tunnel, tough project managers are needed. But when it comes to developing digital or physical products, the role of a project manager has an increasingly difficult standing. During agile or digital transformations, new roles emerge to take over project management tasks. So, are project managers needed in these areas in the future?

After an introduction on how agile is disrupting product and service development, Christoph Wolf and Stephan Adler will show how project management tasks are handled in a lean and agile environment. They will discuss the new roles and show a way how project managers can fit into this setting and have an active discussion with the participants.
