We will present all keynote speakers as soon as they are confirmed.
Dr Anna Sandberg, Volvo Cars
Becoming complexity experts is the title of Anna Sanderberg’s keynote speach. Anna Sandberg is heading up the Continuous Improvement & Change unit targeting Product Creation within Volvo Cars. Her main focus is directed towards transforming the company towards agile ways of working and assuring continuous improvements as a result of the increasing product complexity. Anna is also an Associate Professor (docent) at the University of Gothenburg and has previously worked for the telecom company Ericsson where she has been involved in similar efforts. Anna is using all kinds of change tactics and ’doing whatever it takes to make it happen in practice’ since illusionary change only results in blaming agile itself.
