Tao-inspired transformation

The book of Tao (400 BC) is about Agility,

Lao-Tzu (老子), who presumably wrote the book, was the first documented Agile coach, advising Duke Xian, of the Zhou dynasty thru the Chinese empire transformation.

In this session we will hear his story, dive into the principles of Taoism and understand the deep connection between Taoism and agility.

We will connect to the idea that the whole world is one, discuss the power and risk of definitions, and examine the relevance of this to the agility of people, teams and organizations.

We will also get a peek into "The Agile Tao", a fascinating book by Peter Merel that refactors the book of Tao into Agility.

A journey of a thousand miles begins at the spot under one’s feet. join us as you are.

    Regis SCHNEIDER / Dov TSAL - Apprehend managerial posture in Agile context thanks to Agile games

    45 Mins

    Agile Games are a very interesting way to help people who engage themselves (or who are asked to...) in an Agile approach.

    We will experience a number of them, centered around managerial postures.
