    Sociocracy is a way for groups and organizations to self-organize. Based on four principles only (self-organizing teams, shared decision making based on consent, double-linking, and electing people to functions and tasks), sociocracy provides a path for existing organizations toward empowerment and self-responsibility on all levels. It enables managers to become agile leaders. Different to comparable models, sociocracy allows companies to start where they are – with their existing organizational structures and the like. It seems to be a perfect fit for organizations which are in the need to be agile truly (due to market pressure), beyond their IT departments and software teams.

    Moreover, on the team level - sociocracy provides a means for the Scrum Master and/or coach to enable self-organization.

    Agile transformation means introducing change. If you work for an organization that hasn't changed in a while, introducing new approaches can feel like a lot of work and even more pain. This applies to any "not fully” or “not quite agile" organizations. Large IT groups often fall in this area, but it can happen anywhere when change is scary or seen as a high risk in the culture. This session introduces the Satir Change Model of human behavior with the addition of choice points and ways you can intervene. Change can trigger chaos, yet choice offers opportunity. Where could you look for new options? How can we guard against reverting to old ways and move to new learning and practice?

    Industries worldwide are entering a new era of management and the rules are changing. Planning, setting expectations and work or project assessments are but a portion of a manager's obligation. With the advent of new generations entering the market place managers are now required to be experts in leadership, delegation, focus and alignment.

    Everyone uses perspectives, from dawn to dusk and even in dreams. From the time we awake ideas and thoughts are packaged into perspectives.

    Perspectives help us with decisions and ultimately guides us in navigating the sea of life. However, we are not alone in this world and for every one person there is a multitude of perspectives.

    So who holds the truth for any given situation? Which perspective is the ‘right’ one? This is our belief - the path to truth is the sum all offered perspectives for any given context or situation. Our beliefs and values are what define our limitations in the number of perspectives we can take. Hence it is very difficult for one to hold the whole truth about anything because of these limitations.

    Going beyond our limitations is one of the answers towards becoming more creative, innovative and inviting discovery.

     

    If your intention is to adapt and become a great Agile manager, coach or leader; then join us in this interactive presentation.

    Come and take part in a session that will stretch and challenge your ability to take different perspectives. It will invite you to have a wider view of what is actually going on and have more insights for more meaningful decisions.

    Modern Agile

    Over the past decade, innovative companies, software industry thought leaders and lean/agile pioneers have discovered simpler, sturdier, and more streamlined ways to be agile.  These modern approaches share a focus on producing exceptional outcomes and growing an outstanding culture.  Today, it makes far more sense to bypass antiquated agility in favor of modern approaches.

    Modern agile methods are defined by four guiding principles:

    • Make people awesome
    • Make safety a prerequisite
    • Experiment & learn rapidly
    • Deliver value continuously

    World famous organizations like Google, Amazon, AirBnB, Etsy and others are living proof of the power of these four principles.  However, you don’t need to be a name brand company to leverage modern agile wisdom.

    In this talk I’ll explain what I mean by modern agility, share real-world modern agile stories, show how modern agile addresses key risks while targeting results over rituals, and reveal how the 2001 agile manifesto can be updated to reflect modern agile’s four guiding principles.
