„We are the champions, my friends…“ What do you think?

…and we’ll keep on fighting till the end.“

 

We will continue to sing like Freddie Mercury and his loveable Queen, and we know that the Champions are all who have this 2020 successful and a little easier. But, one is sure – this year was a hell of the ride, right?

Agile Serbia team put a lot of effort to finish all projects on time and at the same time fulfill clients’ wishes and needs about education.

Let’s agree on one: Online is the current normality.

And sincerely – we did our best to adopt this new normality and maintain focus on quality and tradition. Our Courses were behind the door, we were in the middle of preparation for the first Regional Scrum Gathering here in Belgrade. And the world has paused at the moment.

But, agility is our middle name and we adopted the current health situation. In 366 days we had a lot, and we’ll give you a little sneak peek:

 

  • Over 200 certified Scrum Masters, Product Owners and Agile Leaders during our Agile Months. Also, we held many certified courses and Agile training for different companies (11 on-site trainings);
  • Our Agile Community was blooming and still does because you found the value in our Agile Serbia Afternoon panels and free online webinars with amazing Agile stars (Angel Medinilla, Petri Heiramo, Miljan Bajić, Predrag Rajković, etc.);
  • We made great progress on social networks and beyond that (more than 4000 people that respect our work and content);
  • We also got new team members as an important reinforcement;
  • For the first time we organized an online Advanced Certified Scrum Product Owner Course with many satisfied participants and marvelous Trainer;
  • And of course – we are the proudest of the MatchAbout application, the platform that provided us valuable experience during the challenging times, especially when we think about our first online Agile Serbia Conference.

 

So, the main question was: How to organize an online conference and keep all the magic?

 

Agile Serbia Conference 2020We have experience with the organization of conferences. And we know it’s a mixture of complex feelings and emotions. All the excitement, preparation, traveling, meeting new people, exploring new cities, countries, even continents.

Knowing all that, we were facing a challenge – how to transfer all that to an online event?

We want to allow all participants to connect to other people, to share their experiences and ideas, to ask questions to speakers, and to have their dilemmas answered by some of the biggest names in the Agile world. Also, we want participants to have active roles in the Conference. To have their voices heard in various Polls and Surveys. And we want them to have fun.  To play with us, solve puzzles, enjoy, and win some awesome prizes. To learn something new and have access to all educational material in one place.

And the result was Online Agile Serbia Conference.

 

This Conference was held by our event platform MatchAbout that has so many functionalities to keep the magic alive, our supporters, sponsors and friends.

And we made it!

So, the final results are:

  • 250+ participants;
  • 12 speakers on 2 stages;
  • 4 workshops and 2 interactive panels;
  • 20+ official partners and more than 100 media and press releases.

 

Aaaand, this isn’t the end! We prepared many more fantastic surprises! This is a small piece of our Agile puzzle and during these years we have grown, learnt and discovered new horizons, stories and amazing people. As Freddie said: We’ll keep on fighting till the end“. Also, we heard your wishes and prepared some new practical projects. Besides that, a whole new Agile Month 2021 is approaching and we put our hope that we’ll see the shining lights of Regional Scrum Gathering 2021.

 

We hope this year has made you stronger, wiser and ready for new challenges. In the meantime, stay safe, grow your relationships, work on yourself and have fun.

 

Happy Holidays,

Agile Serbia team

5 reasons to attend Agile Serbia Conference 2020! Well, there are even 6 and 7… and more

There’s no doubt that this 2020 has been reeeeally challenging. And still is. So, what have you done for your personal growth? Have you trained, watched movies or read books? Or have you educated yourself in fields that are mandatory for your business? We’re sure of one thing – education isn’t on the break. Yes, you heard about this a million times, but it’s necessary to mention the importance of this conclusion.

 

Big, bigger, the biggest

 

Agile Serbia continues to fly above the clouds trying to give a lot of reasons why education is crucial and meaningful. We don’t give up this fact. For the last 10 years, we have been carefully building our community and making worthwhile friendships. Agile Serbia Conferences are our ways to say thank you to all of you who are constantly learning and improving your own careers and personal goals.

But this Edition is quite specific. And not only for obvious reasons. All-Stars release is quite amusing because it gathers fantastic aspects in one place:

 

 

#1 Yes, it’s online

…and no, that’s not a flaw, that’s even a great possibility for your education. First, attending this Conference is (at this moment) safer. Also, it’s easier to track your own activities and save your energy. If you have lecture in the morning, and a workshop in the afternoon, you can make a pause and take a breath. Maybe a little nap or chit-chat with your friends and family. Online is the new normality.

 

#2 Yes, you can really talk with the greatest Agile Stars

Well, from where can we start? Alistair Cockburn, Sander Hoogendoorn, Jurgen Appelo, Angel Medinilla, Andrea Goulet, Mark Loffler, Miljan Bajić, Petri Heiramo, Olaf Lewitz, Almudena Rodriguez Pardo, Aino Vonge Corry, Alex Sloley, Predrag Rajković, Marko Majkić and Luka Aničin are absolutely Stars. Each is an expert. Also, our workshops have special value.

For example, if you wanna improve your communications skills and ways to manage product – Workshop Product Owner in practice is right choice for you. On the other side, Scrum Master workshop is for all SM Supermen who are handling processes, teams and PO’s. But, if you’re a mastermind in TDT or Artificial Intelligence, well – we have ready for you two workshops about Test-Driven Development and Machine Learning. And, this isn’t all – panels are our specialty where you can join and give your opinions about the current topic.

 

#3 This isn’t just another online meeting

A completely different online experience – yes!
Moving from one to another live stage – yes!
Interactive workshops and practical conversations with all Agile Superstars – yes!
Continual networking – yes!

MatchAbout is a unique platform. It allows you plenty of creative opportunities and it’s quite amusing to see these multiple options. Switch from All-Stars Stage to Big-League Stage or join the panels at the same time. You can also chit-chat with other participants, share your experience and more importantly – all material from Conference you’ll find on MatchAbout. Isn’t that cool?

 

#4 It’s valuable and countable for your career

By attending Agile Serbia Conference, you don’t only get great insights and contacts. Scrum Education Units® (SEUs points) are very important, especially if you wanna validate your participation and continued proficiency in the fundamental principles and practices of Scrum. On All-Stars Edition you’ll get SEU points depending if you’re attending only on lectures and panels or the whole Conference – including workshops. More details about this valuation find here.

 

#5 Affordability and commodity in one place

The best value for money when we talk about Agile Serbia Conference is completely true. Taking into account that you get really, really excellent knowledge, guidelines and tips & tricks from the best Professionals in Agile universe. And you’ll do that from your home or office. Isn’t that great?

 

Life according to Agile

 

If you want to survive nowadays, think about how flexible and adaptable you or your organization is – could you continue with the present or even better with the next big market change(s)?

Learning while listening is more productive when you adopt new useful insights. So, what are your plans for 7th & 8th December 2020? The upcoming Agile Serbia Conference: All-Stars Edition 2020 has plenty of possibilities for personal growth. Thanks to app MatchAbout, you’ll really enjoy multiple content on this platform.
