Intellias, a global IT company, will gather world-known Agile experts to discuss techniques and instruments for leading businesses during a crisis.

From June 1–3, the global software provider Intellias will hold a three-day conference on Agile
development methodologies during challenging times. Intellias Agile Days will unite over 1000 online
attendees from all over the world. The audience will include developers, QA engineers, Scrum
masters, product owners and managers, Agile coaches, business analysts, and IT company CEOs, who
will have the opportunity to interact and exchange ideas. The conference is free and open to

The conference’s theme is “the art of business survival during a crisis.” World-leading Agile experts
from Poland, the USA, Bulgaria, Spain, and other countries will talk about their practical cases and
share their knowledge about Agile methods during times of crisis.

“Agile is a healthy way to find solutions, something like a trial-and-error method. Using flexible
development processes, engineers can conduct certain research which helps create products that
meet clients’ needs. The same flexible processes help businesses respond effectively to trying times”,
says Roman Pavlyuk, VP of Digital Strategy at Intellias.

Among the planned speakers are Joe Justice, who will talk about Agile methods at Tesla; Piotr
Majkowski, with his insights into Spotify’s Agile instruments; Alex Ballarin, a Scrum trainer at, who will speak about user-centric Scrum teams; Nicola Bogdanov, co-founder of
AgilePool, with his view on personal coaching; Roman Pavlyuk, VP of Digital Strategy at Intellias,
who will talk about product management services and practices; and Yurgen Appelo, the author of
Management 3.0, who will talk about why innovations are more than just Agile or Lean and how we
can manage the system instead of people.

“Agile Intellias is directly supporting companies, and more importantly, humanity, in crisis. This is not
a situation that we can predict and plan with an annual budget. This is an emerging response. To be
effective, to be humane, we are agile. At this conference, I will bring what I learned working for Elon
Musk,” says Joe Justice, board member at Agile Business Institute. 

“The world is changing faster than ever. In the late 70s, organizations in the S&P 500 index could
have been on that list for 35 years; now, the number is closer to 20 years and keeps shrinking. The
public sector is also affected by the disruption. The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the
vulnerability of public authorities and difficulties with shifting to a remote working format.
Organizational agility, both as a strategy and operational capability, is, therefore, a key feature for
the majority of organizations. At this conference, we will discuss customer-centric and outcome-
oriented organizations and how to build them,” says Alex Ballarin, business agility coach at and professional Scrum trainer at 

Despite the Covid-19 pandemic and the full-scale russian invasion of Ukraine, Intellias has managed
to maintain its business and even continue its geographical expansion. Currently, the company is

opening offices in Poland, Bulgaria, Croatia, Spain, Portugal, and Colombia. Intellias believes that
Agile methods and techniques can help a company navigate in times of uncertainty.

Participation in Intellias Agile Days is free, but attendees are encouraged to make donations to
support Ukraine. Intellias aims to raise money for nonprofit organizations dedicated to providing
humanitarian aid to the Ukrainian people.
