Keynote Speaker


Mik Kersten

CEO, Tasktop, author of the Best Selling Book from “PROJECT TO PRODUCT”

How to Survive and Thrive in the age of Digital Disruption with the Flow Framework


The mark of a great book is that it makes obvious what is wrong with the old worldview and replaces it with one that is simultaneously simpler and yet presents a better model of reality. The transition from Copernican to Newtonian physics has been long held as a great example of such a breakthrough. I believe project to product presents a new way to think that enables a new way of doing.


Gene Kim, CTO of IT Revolution and co-author of The Phoenix Project, The DevOps Handbook
