Agile Lean Europe
20–24 August 2018
Learning, sharing, teaching. Unlearning. Creativity and discovery. Agility and exploration. Connection.
You wish to support Europe’s most unusual annual gathering of coaches, trainers and practitioners in Lean and Agile. Your friendly contribution is highly appreciated. Thank you!
This page serves as a conversation starter. Let’s get in touch!
While travelling all around Europe, this unusual unconference is operated by the community, for the community. The organisation committee is formed anew year after year, at the location of the event – by people joining forces for the love of ALE. There is no professional organisation behind to pull off yet another conference. Or to make money from it, for that matter.
This all invites creativity, learning and sharing.
Here’s your chance to step in and be part of it!
Last years’ attendees include an amazingly diverse crowd of 250 change makers, Lean thinkers, Agile practicitioners, Scrum coaches and many more things they are – including 23 youth, travelling with their parents to experience the spirit of ALE and share their ideas, thoughts, questions and friendship.
Whereabouts – the Location
Some would say that Zürich is located at the very center of Europe, easily reachable by train, or any other means of transport. For sure, the Impact Hub Zürich Kraftwerk at Selnaustrasse is located at the very center of Zürich.
In comfortable walking distance from Zürich main station, this unique space offers all a conference attendee could wish for, and then some more. Beautifully situated on the shores of river Sihl, it is also warmly inviting on the inside.
The old electric power transformer station has been carefully and creatively updated to host events just like this one. For ALE, the eclectic power transformer unconference.

Who’s Paying What?
ALE is an unconference by the community for the community. No one makes a financial profit and attendance fees are traditionally around 250€ to cover the very basics while keeping the doors open to everyone.
Everything on top of that is to be covered by individuals and companies who are willing to help making ALE awesome with their financial contribution. This year, our first supporter is Impact Hub Kraftwerk, allowing us to use their beautiful, centrally located and fully equipped event location at a rate affordable to ALE.
There are many ways to support ALE 2018 in Zürich. Find some ideas in this overview, or contribute your own!
Who owns ALE?
No one. It’s an idea and a community. After each event, what there is in terms of knowledge and funds is passed on to the next organising committee.
Where will my Logo be placed?
Wherever it makes most sense. Where your exchange with the community takes shape. We don’t believe in bit sponsor logos on shirts, or sponsor’s booths. Let’s find ways for meaningful interaction!
Why should I care?
This community is there to bring better ways of working to the world. Here’s your one-off chance to make your contribution – and to connect with a Europe-wide network of friendly specialists. Don’t miss out!
