Forward Flagship Summit is the unmissable hybrid conference for maintaining happiness in an agile transformation. The conference is built to create an interactive & deep learning journey with a central place for fun and great networking for our global attendees.

This 2+1 day Summit is centered around “Happiness as the ‘Why’ in agile transformations.”  

Forward Flagship Summit won’t be your average conference. We aim to create an experience in true Management 3.0 fashion coming with bold colors, new ideas, and tangible tools. 

The user experience is always at the forefront of our minds.

Why Hybrid? 

As a global community, we have opted for a hybrid conference. Hybrid will allow those who cannot travel to Berlin for various reasons, including sustainability concerns, to join us via their computer screens. 

We appreciate that physical and virtual events have different set-ups, so we aim to live stream our keynotes and connect virtual and onsite attendees in surprising and engaging ways. We will share similar content with both participants, but the virtual and physical attendees will be on slightly different trajectories, bringing them together at key moments.

What can I expect from Forward Flagship Summit?

At Management 3.0, we are all about experimenting. This hybrid event will be an adventure in bringing the best of in-person and virtual conferencing together. 

Expect happiness in Management 3.0’s signature style. 

Interactive and deep-learning, hands-on practices, signature style graphics, fun activities (live and online), global networking, exciting goodie bags, and so much more. 

Four keynote speakers will approach happiness in (agile) transformations from different angles. 

In addition, we will have practice sessions, case study sessions, an open session, and a networking event.

Practice sessions will allow deep diving into an exercise, serious game, or application. 

Case studies will bring you the best examples from the industry.

What about timezones?

We will run our virtual and online sessions in parallel as a hybrid conference. 

We will live stream the keynotes directly from Berlin; all other sessions are tailored to each audience’s needs. 

This means sessions will not precisely mimic each other and might diverge. However, all sessions will be on Central European Time, allowing maximum engagement between both audiences.

Will you record?

We will record the live keynote talks from Berlin and the virtual audience practice and case study sessions. 

The recordings will allow both onsite and virtual participants to return to the shared information and re-engage with the content in their own time. 

We want to emphasize that all our events are created with optimum engagement; you will get the most out of this conference by blocking the time in your calendar and joining us live.

What does my ticket entitle me to join?

An online ticket 

If you purchase an online ticket, this will grant you all access to the two conference days. Workshops on 30 November will need to be purchased separately. 

A ticket for the physical conference in Berlin

Purchasing a physical ticket for Berlin will grant you access to all the sessions during the two conference days; it will include lunch, a reception, and a walking dinner on 1 December. 

Workshops on 30 November will need to be purchased separately. 

We are currently in conversation with a hotel near the conference venue. We will update you when we have more information!

In addition, we will be adding an optional event organized by the Management 3.0 community on 30 November. Tickets and more information will be available soon. 

How do I join?

Once you have bought your ticket, you will receive confirmation of your attendance.

Virtual and onsite participants will receive a link and instructions to create a virtual profile.

Both participants will be able to communicate via an app and web-based solution. The virtual participants will follow the keynote live stream, special virtual sessions, and designated fun and networking activities via this platform.

You can find more information about the venue and the transportation for the onsite conference here.

What technical items do I need If I’m joining virtually?

Ensure you have robust internet connectivity, a webcam, and speakers/microphone. And most importantly – yourself! Come armed with questions & an open mind!

I want to join virtually; how will you make the virtual conference interactive?

Firstly, we are building both experiences with our audiences in mind. That means we are not just putting a camera up in our Berlin venue and sharing it with you. Our keynotes will be live-streamed, but you will be able to ask questions, which we will moderate and bounce to the speaker. 

For the practice sessions & case study sessions, we are asking our speakers to deliver their talks twice. The speakers will provide their talks once to our live audience and once modified for participants worldwide behind their computer screens. 

Our network, open and social sessions are designed and created specifically for our virtual audience. 

How can I network and meet fellow attendees?

Onsite participants will have ample opportunity to connect during breakout sessions, coffee breaks, lunch, and the reception. We are also planning a designated networking event. 

Both sets of participants will be able to communicate via an app and a web-based solution. We are coming up with ways to connect both audiences in surprising and engaging ways. Stay tuned for more information on this. 

There will be plenty of opportunities for small breakout sessions on the platform for online participants. You will also be able to message and chat with other attendees through the event platform or have 1 to 1 meetings with people with whom you may wish to do business. And we are also planning a designated networking event, where you will be networking with fellow attendees from across the globe. 

What is the dress code?

Good question! Our in-house illustrator ( thanks, @chad) is developing some brand new designs, especially for the Forward Flagship summit. T-shirts, hoodies, and other goodies will soon be available in the shop. We hope you come and rock the look with us. 

What about health and safety?  

At Management 3.0, we take health and safety seriously; we perform a risk assessment at our venue and will closely monitor the COVID19 rules and regulations in Germany. We will always comply with any official preventive measures to prevent the virus’s spread. We will update our participants about the measures closer to the time. Please check the government website for the latest regulations and entry restrictions.
