Agility on a company level takes more than agile project management and an agile repertoire of methods. Standalone approaches involving individual agile teams or projects lack the necessary weight to set things in motion. As a result, many manufacturers and suppliers are edging closer and closer to introducing agility on all levels and synchronising activities across all areas. We call this agile@scale.
The 4th Agile Automotive Conference will allow everyone involved in the front-line activities of electric/electronic (E/E) development to share their experiences with different scaling models.
Agile Automotive Conference 2018: key facts
- Wednesday 14 – Thursday 15 November 2018
- Hotel Dormero in Stuttgart, Germany
This fourth Agile Automotive Conference will once again be organised with the support of Euroforum. Please contact Euroform directly to register for the event.
As in the past, this specialist conference will be moderated by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hans-Christian Reuss of the professorial chair of vehicle mechatronics at Stuttgart University.
It’s not enough to be agile as a company, because manufacturers work together closely with suppliers. agile@scale in the automotive industry therefore has to go beyond scaling up existing setups. Agility takes an approach based on coordination and mutual agreement. To address this issue, the VDA has set up a task force called the Agile Collaboration Working Group. The aim is for industry representatives to explore different ways to introduce agile principles to the different sectors within the industry. For example, one issue that will be looked at will be new approaches to contractual arrangements.
Representatives of the VDA working group will provide insights into the work they have carried out until now and present a selection of key insights.
The 4th Agile Automotive Conference is an ideal chance to assess the status quo and examine how far industry players have come in becoming agile organisations, as well as the obstacles they still need to overcome in everyday projects. A number of talks and workshops will be organised to look at:
- agile collaboration
- agility in mechatronic systems
- agile organisational structures
- people working in agile structures

Witness agility live
The conference will use the stimulating situation to discuss issues together and exchange experiences. To facilitate this, interactive methods will be used:
- Business speed dating
Innovation is often fuelled by overlaps and interfaces. By networking, you can get to know other conference delegates and pick up new ideas for your projects.
- Live voting
You will have the opportunity to give the presenters your own feedback and influence the topics that will be looked at during the conference.
- Hands-on platform construction
The LEGO Serious Play method will be used to allow you to learn from this approach to business model development and witness how you can deal with problems through play.
- The Soccer World Cup is over, or maybe not…
A table football tournament will be held in the evening to promote team-building and networking.
