    Case Study

    For a decade of software product agile, we had worked in a structure where business responsibility of what to build was allocated to a product owner and the responsibility of how to build it was allocated to a development team. Product owner would maintain a backlog, act as voice of the customers. Until one day we realized that the choice of what to build or fix is hard, and critical to everyone’s success. If we wanted to do it poorly, we delegated it to a single product owner.

    We started a no product owner experiment. For three months, we experienced the development team delivering multitudes of value to what we had grown to expect, and innovate customer-oriented solutions in direct collaboration with customers. Team satisfaction and happiness bloomed. The experiment turned into a continuous way of working.

    Customer-focused team directly in touch with their customers performs better without a proxy. Join me to learn how the decision power shared for everyone in the team transformed the ability to deliver, and how collaboration is organized with product experts and business representatives.

    The “Agile mindset” was introduced to the software development community in 2001 in an attempt to foster freedom in the way that we work together. Its intent was to encourage organizational change that focused on people, collaboration and culture.

    But words on a screen don’t mean much in practice, especially if the people using them don’t - or won’t- understand their intent. How can individuals, teams and companies learn to correct these mistakes and break free from the challenges associated with change?

    Jen will share practical advice on effective Project Management, Agile Transformation, and getting things done– all told through the stories of her own journey towards something better at Red Hat.

    Because the productivity driven world of the industrial era encouraged us to divide in order to control, we live today in disconnection. Disconnection from ourselves, from our team, from our society. This workshop proposes to shift the paradigm and innovate using "reconnection" principles as defined by the Theory U. To understand the way theory U operates at a people group level, a concrete framework, "Process Work", by Arnold Minundell, will be experienced.

    The workshop is a hands-on experiment of impact of change on each member of a team, including the game change player. The different stages of transformation defined by the Theory U will be experimented via Process Work, and is equally inspired by the model of living systems.

    The ultimate intention of this workshop is to offer participants a learning experience of emergent co-created innovation , via quality listening, and the ability to redirect perspective
