    Surprisingly, not all enterprises have a vision. And, when you're talking about delivering products & services at scale, not having a vision, or, worse yet, having one that no one knows or believes in, results in chaos, which leads to confusion in the market and ultimately losing customers.
     
    Susan Gibson (SPCT) has worked with 1000's of change agents to create personal visions, that are then turned into compelling shared visions for their teams, divisions, and institutions. When individuals see themselves in the vision, that's when the enterprise hums. Susan will share stories of how these compelling shared visions gave the enterprises she's worked with the focus they needed to truly delight their customers.

    We have been discussing a lot regarding Agile transformations and how such transformations can help organizations. The key is to base such a transformation on the concepts of agility such as self-organization, intrinsic motivation, collaboration, etc. But still the puzzle of how those can be used in practice is less discussed. This is where the emerging concept of "Learning Organization" from Peter Senge can help a lot.

    The five disciplines of a Learning Organization lies in the heart of an agile organization. Therefore, exploring the learning organization within agile organization aids us find the "truly" agile organization.

    This is an experience report of a journey where a mid-size offshore software development organization moving towards to become a learning organization.

    One of the keys to a successful enterprise agile transformation is the support of Executive Leadership, which is more than simply providing approval. The Agile Executive enables, empowers and engages rather than controls.

    According to one recent survey, more than one in three organisations claim that the lack of Executive Leadership engagement within their businesses is plaguing current journey towards sustainable organisational Agility.

    With a special focus on Executive teams, Dipesh will be drawing upon more than a decade of Agile transformation experiences across multiple organisations, and share real-life case studies and insights to illustrate the following key things that Agile Executives need to do differently:

    1. Stop Starting, Start Finishing
    2. Slow Down to Go Faster
    3. One Team, One Dream
    4. Foster Fully Capable Teams
    5. Fail Early & Fail Small
    6. Deliver Business Value, not just Projects
    7. Servant Leadership

    Awareness of the above principles is important and may sound simple; however turning the awareness of these elements into the inner workings of our daily routine takes discipline. With that in mind, all attendees will also be given ‘The Agile Leaders Checklist' that will assist them in making such behaviours habitual.

    If you are an Executive or a Leader of an Agile team, this session will provide clear implications for where to focus your efforts in order to unleash the full potential of Agile methods to gain a competitive edge. You will be inspired by knowing what serves to catalyze and nourish progress – and what does the opposite.

    Traditional Performance Management systems are in deep crises. Their industrial era approach is unable to meet the demands and thinking of 21st century people and organizations. Join this interactive workshop to discuss how Lean | Agile enterprises can push the reset button and move from an administrative Performance Management process to a successful iterative performance flow.

     This is a highly participative open space session and we will cover questions like:

    • Why is there a need to push the reset button on Performance Management?
    • How do we approach goal settings in an agile environment? What is the best balance between collective vs. individual goals? Can you align individual goals with agile thinking?
    • Why is there a trend to eliminate employee appraisals? Are 360-feedbacks the new employee appraisals? Can we still promote people without appraisals and less/no hierarchical structure?
    • How valid are traditional bonus models or are there better ways for remuneration and acknowledgement?

    It's great to come to conferences and hear all the good advice from lost of smart and experienced people.

    But how likely are we to take our insights back and drive real change? What stops us from really changing the world?

    It's a truism that an inpidual can't beat the system, right? So how do we go about making change a collective agenda? How do we encourage leadership everywhere? We start by focusing on others rather than ourselves.

    In this interactive session I lead a series of small activities that model how we can go from a discussion with our friend about how things should be to leading change across the organisation. 

    I run three small discussions. Each one is designed to teach a method for increasing influence and effecting organisational change.  We pick the theme of "When I saw someone do something great/amazing at work" and each iteration we increase the number of people in the discussion, and make the stories more personal.

    This shows how in just three iterations of a discussion we can totally change the way we interact with the environment (i.e. the people in the wider business) and drive braver conversations.
