Project Management track

The reasons why projects fail has been explored numerous times. At this year’s project management track, we’ll take a slightly different approach by not looking at the tools, but by actually looking at the actual project management as the key to unlocking successful projects.

We’ll hear from different perspectives both agencies and customers and learn actionable insights to bring home for our 2020 projects.

Keynote: The future of work is already here - it's just not evenly distributed yet

The future of work is the latest hype topic; we've all heard scare stories about robots taking our jobs. But what will the future of work really look like? And how can we, as digital practitioners, help our organisations prepare for it? In this session I'll bust the myths about the future of work and explore how in many industries that future has already arrived.

Digital Project Success Checklist

There is no shortage of high profile digital projects that have run over time, over budget or both. Managing digital projects is hard because it relies on using new unproven technologies, terminology is ambiguous, expectations are high and the desire for constant change of requirements is relentless. 

This opening session covers the complete project lifecycle from writing the business case to project closure.

Antipatterns for Retrospectives

Antipatterns are like patterns, only more informative. With antipatterns you will first see what patterns re-occur in "bad" retrospectives and then you will see how to avoid, or remedy, the situation.

Coffee, tea & networking

300 seconds is a series of lightning talks by and for the community. It gives a push to digital professionals who are sitting all quietly on valuable insights and learning, and haven't yet found the courage to share them with the rest of us! That's why we are extremely proud to have Sharon O'Dea facilitate a round of these talks at the Boye 19 conference.

Speaker: Michael Bednar-Brandt (AT) Keynote: Deconstructing the experience economy

  3. Engagements - interactions along a journey

When realizing project management has nothing to do with the manager, but is all about serving the team, you are ready to take off and deliver some kickass projects. But how can we as managers help our teams to success?
