Transforming Addicted Organisations: Serenity to accept what I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can
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.

Introducing Concepts

Is product development best done by letting people with a certain role decide what to do, or rather by allowing people passionate about ideas to run with it?

Can product development successfully happen in a multi team scenario without PO's and PM's?

Let me introduce you to Concepts (crisp.se/concepts) and share a story from a real case where we applied it to our product development.

Concepts is light weight technique allowing people passionate about ideas, regardless of roles, to drive new product ideas all the way to happy customer.

Liquid Organizations: Anti-fragility beyond design
During more than 100 years of classic management, hierarchy oriented organizations have shown their limits. A new generation of enterprises is now moving its first steps towards a brand new way to organize and prosper. Liquid, collaborative, flat, responsive, adaptive and anti-fragile: these are just buzzwords as long as alibis keep hanging around. Based on our real experience, we'll tell our story experimenting with new radical ways to set an organization up.

How to collaborate without the need to compromise, submit or control others?

When people dare to be who they are, think what they think and act according to what they want, it generally fits well with what is needed in a team; otherwise it will be clear that people might change position.

During this workshop participants will start paying attention to who they become when interacting with others.

Most of the time these behaviours are a continuation of a way of being that we are used to being in the past, without having a new choice to be who one wants to be today.

The Grinberg method is an approach through the body that teaches to control automatic behaviours, to gain more freedom, self esteem, humility, respect of others and enthusiasm.

Applying this in the field of teamwork, stopping old habits of behaviours, will allow people to create a solid, strong and efficient teamwork.

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
