Agile goes Development Cooperation – increasing effectiveness, preventing burnout

Let's face the issues in our everyday's project reality: Intensive planning, high commitment – but still the results are not always satisfying in the field. Development cooperation projects (Entwicklungspolitik und -zusammenarbeit) hold hidden potential that can be made visible and put to use by working agile.

With our Agile Meetup, that will take place at ‘The 9th’ Stockenstr. 1-5, Bonn on 12th April between 10:00 and 13:00 we invite leaders and game-changers active in the field of development cooperation. There will also be a snack between 13:00 and 14:00 to do some networking. We are very glad to have the co-working space ‘The 9th’ as our host!

At the Agile Meetup you will get a better understanding of what agile is all about, and ideas how you could implement agile in your work to achieve greater impact and more engagement. With agile you can plan, deliver and finish projects more effectively and with stronger ownership at all levels.

The Agile Meetup is for free because we believe in building a community of agile minds that are committed to making a real difference in development cooperation. We invite you to donate to UNO-Flüchtlingshilfe (UNHCR Refugee Aid).

We are limited to 20 people – get your free ticket now! We look forward to meeting you and giving you a great start to your Friday.
