Everything agile? – Agile (project) management between mainstream and hype

Everything agile? – Agile (project) management between mainstream and hype

The IHK Berlin, the PMI Germany Chapter e.V. and the German Society for Project Management e.V. (GPM) invite you to the project management evening.

Registration for the event runs centrally via the IHK Berlin website and will be activated on August 1st, 2022. The corresponding link can then be found here.


Is agility the solution to everything? And are we at the beginning or at the end of developments towards a new and modern (project) management?
Agility is one of the hyped topics at the moment - although some are already saying that it has arrived in the mainstream. We will approach the topic from several perspectives. On the one hand, we work out the success factors for agile working on a conceptual level, look at the current state of research on the subject and deal with further developments of agile methods towards new management models. On the other hand, we use a practical case to show why a mixture of agile and conventional methods can lead projects to success.

After the lecture program, we invite you to an exchange at the GetTogether in the informal atmosphere of the Ludwig Erhard House. In addition, you always have the opportunity to get to know the hosts of both project management organizations PMI and GPM better. For all members of PMI and GPM, the event is a chapter or regional meeting.


Dr.-Ing. Agnetha Flore and Prof. Dr. Helge Nuhn: Agile project management and management 4.0

They will talk about the opportunities, problems and the many prerequisites that influence the successful implementation of agility. The history and terminology are looked at and the causes for the many success stories - which "agile" has undoubtedly generated - are examined.
From the knowledge gathered and the observations made, a systemic understanding of "Management 4.0" has developed beyond questions of scaling, which has been designed by the specialist group and has attracted attention at international conferences. The concept is explained and discussed.
A number of interesting questions follow from understanding agile management. On the one hand, this validates the theoretical model of a Management 4.0 understanding. On the other hand, they give rise to research in various areas.
Various research projects are therefore pending at two universities and in the specialist group work itself, ranging to new innovative technologies such as machine learning and AI, but also including psychological and sociological basics. The approaches of research and further development are presented.
The overall view is followed by an outlook and a classification into adjacent management areas.

Jörg Vanhoefer: Project management in transition - using the example of a hybrid customs project at HHLA AG

What made a HHLA hybrid customs project successful and how have hybrid projects changed project management in recent decades?
Based on a project, Jörg Vanhoefer describes what helped this project to be successful at the time and how similar experiences in the project manager community have shaped Disciplined Agile and the PMBOK® Guide 7 since then.
