At Businessmap, we have always wanted to organize an event that brings industry experts together so we can discuss all things Lean & Agile! And it's finally happening!

We are proud to announce that KanConf is lined up!

Come join us in this event, where sharing knowledge and experience will help us all advance further in our business, career, or personal goals.

What Is KanConf?

KanConf is the first of four virtual mini-conferences that will provide an opportunity to gain knowledge and learn from the experience of Agile and Kanban experts.

Our vision is to host four virtual KanConf events throughout the year, each building on top of the last, giving you a sneak peek inside the brilliant minds of change-makers. But worry not, you don't have to have attended previous ones to reap the benefits of the next.

What Motivates Us?

Our Vision is to help people do meaningful work and by that, accelerate innovation. On our journey towards that bold vision, we firmly believe that creating a community where knowledge and experience are openly shared will help us all learn from one another and move faster towards progress. That's why for us success means a few things: strong relationships with our partners, aim to provide nothing short of top-notch experience for our clients, and commitment to deliver unbiased industry insights to our followers. The KanConf series of virtual events is a means to express our deep beliefs, that at the heart of all success stories, lies continuous improvement through learning and an incessant desire for knowledge.

Who Will Join the KanConf #1?

Our goal is to provide you with a high-quality learning experience facilitated by thought-provoking leaders in the Kanban, Agile and Lean fields. That's why we went the extra mile and reached out to some of the best industry experts to ask them to be the curators (panelists) of our conference.
