About Agile Leadership Summit

The organizers of the Agile Leadership Summit events is a joint venture between Accelinnova and Trifork A/S, the organizer of JAOO Denmark for more than a decade.

Since 1996, Trifork has organized JAOO - a conference for software developers, architects and project managers. JAOO is an annual event in Aarhus, Denmark which attracts more than 1000 participants.

Accelinnova was formed to help leaders lead their enterprises at the speed they want to move. We looked for proven tools to address the business issues and challenges leaders face as their market rapidly shifts around them.

But, tools are only useful if they work - and can change as business markets change. At Accelinnova, we are aware of the need to evolve since our leadership tools are all about embracing change.

To keep our tools useful and effective, we have brought together some of the best minds in the business world to provide you with updated tools and best practices. In addition to the Accelinnova Leadership Team, we formed a consortium of thought leaders we call our Network Partners, who we meet with quarterly to review the effectiveness of Accelinnova tools in practice, update them as needed, and expand the leadership models behind these tools. 

To find out how we can help you put the Accelinnova Leadership Tools to work in your organization with our Leadership Team or any of our Network Partners, contact us at +1 612 605 2370 or via email at
