Scaling organizational change
In this session I’m showing a model that organizations can use to foster the adoption of agile. This model is "locally" based on lean change, understandig Agile initiatives from different countries as startups. It scales by using the validated learning cycles of every organization to create a validated learning knowledge base. The knowledge base is grows with the performed experiments of agile practices in different business units. This "validated learning knowledge base" is co-created by the members of the internal international Agile community and shared through A3 report sheets.
The the model can be de composed as follows:
- Lean Start up principles as foundations for a change strategy,
- A3 thinking and problem solving as a support for lean continuous improvement,
- Agile Journey mapping as a strategy designing tool
- A Validated Learning Knowledge Base as a support for effective sharing,
this is a complete and easy to use framework that can help communities, multisite organizations and groups of Agile leaders to boost Agile adoption in their business units.
This model has being experimented in the Dutch multinational organisation ING.
