The last time Don Reinertsen was at Lean Kanban Central Europe, he said: "This is my first and my last Pecha Kucha!" That was back in 2012 in Vienna. Two years later, we were able to motivate him to give a keynote we sure are looking forward to: "Rethinking Robustness - Uncertainty is Not the Enemy".
Don is a thought leader on lean product development and well known for his books, e.g. The Principles of Product Development Flow: Second Generation Lean Product Development. Apart from his huge expertise, he also is a great guy to meet.
Being a thought leader usually means being ahead of the crowd. So if you want to be inspired by ideas that challenge our traditional thinking, make sure to register soon.
After announcing Mary and Tom Poppendieck as our first keynote speakers, we are excited to announce the second keynote speaker in line: Henrik Kniberg!
Henrik is well known for his books “Scrum and XP from the Trenches” and “Kanban and Scrum, making the most of both” and “Lean from the Trenches“. He works as an Agile/Lean coach at Crisp in Stockholm, working primarily with Spotify. At Spotify he helped them scale in a way most people by now have read about in his article Scaling Agile @ Spotify with Tribes, Squads, Chapters and Guilds.
Read more about Henrik on the speakers site.
We are happy to announce our first keynote speaker, actually two keynote speakers: Mary and Tom Popppendieck!
Both are well known for their Software Development Productivity Award winning book Lean Software Development and the corresponding sequels. They shaped the world of lean software development fundamentally.
With their fourth book The Lean Mindset they released a great collection of stories telling what it means for a company to actually be Lean.
We are very excited to hear Mary and Tom speak. If you want to hear them, too, head over to the registration. Grab the chance to not only listen to Mary and Tom, but also meet them in person.
Although 2014 just started it is in full swing. Planning Lean Kanban Central Europe 2014 or LKCE14, as veterans of previous conferences would call it, has started. This year's location is settled and the program board is working the feedback from LKCE13 into this year's program. We are also very close to announcing this year's keynote speakers soon. It will be hard to top Troy Magennis, Stephen Bungay and David J. Anderson as lineup, but we are certain we will make it. So stay tuned!
Also, if you are just as impatient for November and the LKCE14 to arrive as we are: Take a look at our new section "Talks 2013"! We put together a collection of talks from LKCE13 to make time go by faster and waiting more bearable.
Are you interested in attending Lean Kanban Central Europe 2014? Or do you want to speak or sponsor the event? Just drop us a line further down so we keep you updated!
We picked the date, we picked the city and we‘ve almost confirmed the venue: Lean Kanban Central Europe 2014 is coming!
After Arne‘s departure from it-agile to join our friends at Jimdo, we are trying to at least reach the bar for Lean Kanban conferences. So we have decided to eliminate some risks and concentrate on other things that will give you great value for your attendance of LKCE 2014. One risk of course is the location and the venue. And since the Curio-Haus in Hamburg excelled our expectations in professionalism in 2013, we have picked this venue again for LKCE14. We have learned from experience and made some adjustments to the rooms and improve further on the already outstanding service of the staff.
Now you‘re basically just waiting for the date to book your hotel and trip to Hamburg, right? So here it is: The next LKCE14 will take place on November 11th and 12th 2014 in Hamburg.
In the meantime, we recommend to read one of the many articles written about LKCE13 like the one by our friend Markus Andrezak or watch the video to get some impressions from last years LKCE.
We hope to see you there!
