Conference in Copenhagen

When a radical idea becomes an institution

Join the launch of the new Half Double Institute and become inspired

3 March

Half Double started out as a radical idea of changing the way we work with projects. The idea gained a foothold – and now the time has come to launch the Half Double Institute.

A Half Double conference in two parts

Join the Half Double conference on 3 March, where you will be taken on a Half Double journey when we explain how a radical idea became a project, how the project became a methodology, and finally how the methodology became the independent Half Double Institute.

At the conference, we will launch the Half Double Institute and all the new opportunities it offers. All for the benefit of you and your projects.

We have an exciting programme lined up for you, which is divided into an afternoon for all participants and a morning session with a special focus for a small audience.

It is up to you whether you want to participate in both sessions or just one.

Half Double conference

An afternoon session for all participants

Meet representatives from the Half Double Institute, who will present and discuss their perspectives on Half Double and the Institute. You will learn more about their thoughts on what is needed for more organisations to gain more impact in shorter time with their projects. And what it will take to expand the Half Double methodology globally.

The conference calls for your active participation, as you will be invited to visit two deep-dive stands during the conference. At the stands, you will be encouraged to give feedback and ask questions about the topics presented.

At the end of the conference, you will have the opportunity to attend a keynote speech by Paul Gibbons, famous author, speaker and change management consultant. Paul Gibbons will present his take on how organisations can avoid using old-school methods in 21st century business and how organisations can enable and strengthen their application of new agile methodologies such as Half Double.

How to make the agile Half Double way the easy way

When learning how to make use of a new agile methodology, which diverts from the old way of doing project management, how do we ensure that we enable and apply this new mindset and these new agile methods in our organisations?

Half Double Lab

A morning session for 60 participants

Does your organisation have less than 1000 employees, and does it strive to be an attractive workplace for new employees? Do you focus on growth but struggle with the division between operations and projects? Then the Half Double Lab is relevant to you.

We invite you to take part in a lab workshop, where you will be introduced to widespread project barriers, which research has found that small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) experience. CEO Morten Dohrmann Hansen from Malmos will share how his organisation has managed to overcome some of these barriers and realised great project success by applying Half Double through local translation.

At the lab workshop, we will ask for your help in “hacking” how small companies can succeed in working more agile and implement elements from the Half Double methodology in order to achieve more impact in their projects.

We have a 60 people cap on the lab workshop, and we strongly recommend corporate executives, leaders, project managers and employees from companies with less than 999 employees to attend, as they are the target group of the morning lab.
