The twelfth installment of the QED conference will take place in Zadar May 6–8, 2018, and will focus on experimenting. It will answer the questions everyone asks themselves on a daily basis: which way to take, how to grow and develop both on a personal and organizational level? Don’t rush, let’s make an EXPERIMENT!
Experts from the IT world and from other branches will share their experiences, life and business lessons. They all share one thing – they love to experiment. The keynote lecture at QED 2018 will be given by Tina Lee Odinsky-Zec, Director of the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center at Zagreb School of Economics and Management. She will share the experience and knowledge that she has gained working in education and social development. We are also proud to present a lecture by David Brakoniecki of BP3 who will talk about using techniques from Decision Management for implementing experiments in business. Last, but not least, Gregory Keegan, experienced agile coach at agile42, will in his lecture Transition through a Culture of Experimentation share his experience in working with companies that had to implement some general organizational changes.
Other speakers include Piotr Muszyński, former Vice President of Management Board in charge of Operations at Orange Polska, Suzanne Crumb, IBM Application Discovery GSI Sales Lead, Peter Janežič, Head of Department of Partnerships and Bancassurance at Sberbank Slovenia, Jan Vilstrup, partner at Danish SMT Data, as well as many other local and international experts.
The value of experimenting has long been known, but too often forgotten. Experiment help with development; it’s hard to learn without them. Some of them will end in success, while others are destined to end in a mistake, but one thing is sure – both is better than stagnation. A good experiment is never accidental – it’s an intervention that has been planned, done, evaluated and implemented. The experiment in business will be observed in the context of strategy, sales, development, teamwork, process, tools and much more.
