Transforming Addicted Organisations: Serenity to accept what I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can
Addiction:
persistently engaging in compulsive behaviour which the addict knows to be harmful.

Puzzled why change—positive change that’s been proven to work—doesn’t stick to your organisation? Your organisation may be addicted to bad practice. And, overcoming addiction is hard. Really hard. But there are ways to do it.

Your organisation must escape the viscous cycle of soothing short term pain by using practices that provide measurable short-term relief, yet do nothing to address—even exacerbate—long-term problems. Soon the short-term pain relief wears off and the addicted organisation repeats the practice that produced short-term relief. Before long, your organisation is hooked. 

Can you support your organisation to get clean and stay clean? Yes. there are patterns for breaking this vicious addiction cycle.

The Year Without Pants: WordPress.com & The Future of Work

What is it like to work at WordPress.com, the 8th most trafficked website in the U.S., where everyone works from home, no one uses email and dozens of improvements launch to customers every day?

The Year Without Pants follows my story of getting hired, my weeks on the front lines of customer support, and the year I spent leading a team of brilliant programmers designing and building new features for WordPress.com. You’ll get a unique behind the scenes story, where I share everything I learned about creativity, productivity and leadership from the kind of workplace that might be in everyone’s future.

What others are saying

“The Year Without Pants is one the most original and important books about what work is really like, and what it takes to do it well, that has ever been written.”
Robert Sutton, professor, Stanford University, and author, New York Times bestsellers The No Asshole Rule and Good Boss, Bad Boss

“WordPress.com has discovered a better way to work, and The Year Without Pants allows the reader to learn from the organization’s fun and entertaining story.”
Tony Hsieh, author, New York Times best seller Delivering Happiness, and CEO, Zappos.com, Inc.

“The underlying concept—an ‘expert’ putting himself on the line as an employee—is just fantastic. And then the book gets better from there! I wish I had the balls to do this.”
Guy Kawasaki, author, APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur, and former chief evangelist, Apple

“If you want to think differently about entrepreneurship, management, or life in general, read this book.”
Tim Ferriss, author, New York Times best seller The 4-Hour Workweek

“With humor and heart, Scott has written a letter from the future about a new kind of workplace that wasn’t possible before the internet. His insights will make you laugh, think, and ask all the right questions about your own company’s culture.”
Gina Trapani, founding editor, Lifehacker

The Future State of Scrum
In his 'smart travel companion' to Scrum (A Pocket Guide) Gunther ends by reflecting upon ’The future state of Scrum’. Despite Scrum’s wide adoption, Gunther sees much room for improvement, of which he refers to the 2 major ones as “The Power of the Possible Product” and “Upstream Adoption”. The first refers to a cross-functional thinking that goes beyond the walls of the IT department through the enterprise and sees Scrum as a tool for business agility, not merely software delivery. The latter refers to the need of support and facilitation top-down for the bottom-up enthusiasm the generally exists over Scrum.

I'm Alive When I'm At Work, Thank You Very Much
There has been a push for work/life balance, but we don't stop living when we are at work and we don't stop thinking about work when we are home. Happiness doesn't come from work/life balance, it simply comes from balance. If balance is to be achieved, we must appreciate our lives as systems. Jim Benson will show how we suffer when we divide our lives and what the implications socially, psychologically, economically, and productively are for balance.

The A3 Agile Business - An Agile Alignment Approach

As scale and distribution set in at organisations that have strong growth, spreading the lean and agile culture becomes even more important to keep teams aligned and motivated. At Rally, we have fallen in love with A3 Thinking and templates to address this challenge. We do new hire bootcamps, employee trainings and walk the talk, but A3’s seem to be the most effective tool for helping us spread lean thinking and empower teams to share their problems and strategies.   This talk will tell our story, challenge the audience and provide some education on these powerful tools for enabling teams to collaborate, steer and take action.

The talk will include a variety of A3’s with our templates and cheat sheets, covering.

  • How to keep many teams aligned on a common strategy. X-Matrix A3 and Strategy A3’s used to engage everyone in collaboratively planning strategy

  • How to ensure problem-solving efforts actually deliver results. Problem A3’s used to gain visibility of improvements and associated metrics

  • How to decide which innovative ideas are worth pursuing. Experiment A3’s used as part of an innovation funnel and horizon planning

  • How to make agreements on the work clear. Initiative A3’s used to manage significant business and technical work

  • How to help workgroups become real teams. Team Formation A3’s used to bring people together for a common goal

  • How to make it all work. Challenges and real world learnings
