Welcome to Agile Islands 2020!

Welcome to Agile Islands 2020!

We are proud to present the speakers of this year’s conference – a total of some +20 individual experts. These individuals, together representing deep understanding and experience from areas such as IT, sales, public authorities, HR, and other businesses will share with us what components they see as joint building blocks in creating an attractive community, irrespective if it is in business, public administration or other activities.

Throughout the years, we’ve seen that Agile Islands have caught attention far outside Åland, and for this reason, we’re making this year’s conference even more available to English speaking attendees.

Join us on our journey towards an agile society

“Agile islands” is a vision of Åland being the number one agile community in the world.

This means that all parts of the society are based on agile values and they are leading examples in agile methods and practices in their respective areas, regardless if the organisation is based on commercial, public or non-profit principles.

We believe that a common view on focusing organisations based on agile values and practices gives the society a unique possibility to cooperate.

We believe that all parts of a community are better, efficient and creates more value if run by agile values and practices, irrespective of the being commercial or non-profit organisations. In addition we trust that the leading agile community in the world is an extraordinary place to live in, regardless of being born or having migrated to the Ålands islands.
