Leveling Up agility by helping Organisations grow Culture

In order for organisations to “level up”, we need to understand the fundamental aspects of how people and their organisations are able to deal with complexity and thrive by adapting and growing ‘up’.
When the organisation embraces its complexity and need for change, the real journey begins. This session will help leaders to identify the current and future stage of their organisation maturity and determine the pathway for change to support the organisational vision. We will then identify our own leadership maturity level and how that plays a key role in the organisational culture change journey.

    In this session we will cover a brief introduction to the research by Kegan and Lahey where they discovered that behind each of our habits is a strongly held belief that not only keeps us in our groove, but also fights any change that threatens the status quo.

    We will discuss why personal growth and increasing our mental complexity is so important for agile and business transformations in today's VUCA world to succeed.

    We will create your Immunity To Change Map which is a simple way to bring to light the your personal barriers to change. We will start by outlining your commitment to an improvement goal. Then we will sketche out the things that you are either doing or not doing that prevent progress towards the achievement goal. The Map then identifies competing commitments, as well as the big underlying assumptions behind those competing commitments.

    The objective is to pinpoint and address whatever beliefs and assumptions are blocking you from the changes you want to make.

    You will leave this workshop with a better understanding and tools to overcome the forces of inertia and transform your life and your work.

    Do you spend a lot of your time trying to solve people’s problems? What if you could learn a simple tool that you could use to help them learn to solve these problems for themselves? A tool that would enable team members to think more creatively and take more ownership of their work. By using coaching conversations to provide support and feedback, you can help individuals or teams to make sustainable changes and improve their effectiveness.

    This workshop is based on the Wall Street Journal bestseller The Coaching Habit by Michael Bungay Stainer. You will learn and practice his seven essential questions to help you coach people to find their own solutions to their problems.

    Venkatesh Krishnamurthy - Culture follows structure

    45 Mins
    Case Study
    Beginner

    One of the Larman's law of Organisational behaviour is "Culture follows Structure".

    "Culture/behavior/mindset follows system & organizational design. i.e., If you want to really change culture, you have to start with changing structure, because culture does not really change otherwise. By the way, this is an observation in large-scale;

    Structural change involves not only changing the groups, roles, hierarchy, and policies but also includes changing the physical structure. In this presentation, I will share the real life case study of an organisation, where I saw changing slight physical layout of the organisation, brought a huge cultural change.

    This presentation is filled with real life pictures taken during the transformation process so that the attendees can go back and try some of these simple layout changes bringing the change.

    Many of these pictures were taken as part of Large-Scale Scrum(LeSS) experimentation process.

    Daniel Prager / Jemma Ritchie - Levelling up management: Beyond carrots, sticks, and kumbaya

    90 Mins
    Workshop
    Intermediate

    Management and managers have not gone away with the advent of Agile.

    Old-fashioned carrot and stick management may have worked wonders back in the early days of industrialisation, but is woefully inadequate for undertaking complex knowledge work in an uncertain and volatile world.

    At the other extreme, dropping all structure in favour of radical self-management — mocked as "everyone gathering around a campfire singing kumbaya" — doesn't instantly lead to effective coördination, let alone organisational success.

    In this workshop we explore the state of the art of management with a mix of design thinking and facilitated discussion to uncover rich insights and perspectives into the nature of management, and what a re-boot could look like.

    Let's level-up management!

    Jon Gedge / Jasmine Hessel - Accessing Relationship Systems Intelligence with Constellations

    45 Mins
    Workshop
    Intermediate

    Each of us is a member of complex relationship systems - at work, at home and in our communities. Just as emotional intelligence is the ability to understand and manage our own emotions and social intelligence is the ability to empathise and communicate with another individual, relationship systems intelligence is the ability to view a team or group as a unified whole and to work directly with that whole system rather than with a group of individuals.

    In this session, we will use a relationship systems coaching technique called constellations to listen to the ‘voice of the system’ which is created by everyone who attends the session, so we can explore together how comfortable we are in working with conflict.

    Despite progress in our agile processes at work, the people piece remains the pacesetter of change. How do we help people move flexibly through complexity? How do we work generously with our colleagues and tap into our collective intelligence? What control over the pace of change can you personally have by learning more about yourself? Dr Amy Silver shares her expertise in creating the psychological safety, trust and effective communication necessary for us to achieve elevated outcomes, despite the discomfort of our VUCA workplaces (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous).

    Rowan Bunning - Advancing as a ScrumMaster or Agile Coach

    45 Mins
    Talk
    Intermediate

    In many organisations, ScrumMaster is seen as just a team facilitator and played part-time by an already busy team member. If there are full-time ScrumMasters, in many organisations they are rendered ineffective as change agents and capability builders. Their capacity is filled by a heavy load of co-ordination, stakeholder meetings, progress tracking and other project management tasks have been left to ScrumMasters in the absence of a project manager or the implementation of effective Scrum alternatives.

    Many organisations continue to creating conflicts of interest by combining ScrumMaster and Project Manager into the one role. Or undermine the Development Team and Product Owner roles by attempting to blend ScrumMaster with a Delivery Manager role. Or they just get rid of ScrumMasters altogether have a sparse scattering of seagull “Agile Coaches”. Why? …well Spotify!

    Are any of these wise moves?

    At the heart of this appears to be a fundamental misunderstanding of what the ScrumMaster role is all about. Also a failure for ScrumMasters to explain their role in the context of the new mindset and demonstrate its worth to teams, Product Owners, management and other stakeholders.

    90 Mins
    Workshop
    Beginner

    What does an ordinary communication look like from sender and receiver’s perspective? How much is and isn't being said when you are having a conversation? How do you recognise the unspoken and understand a complete perspective?

    Agile folks know that communication is the backbone of a Agile culture. A team’s ability to work through adversity and navigate healthy conflict is what separates high-performing teams from mediocrity. Aside from that, learning to trust your intuition is important to learn at any point of your career.

    This workshop will introduce one of the techniques from Integral facilitation that aids navigating conversations and improve common understanding in between participants.

    The technique embeds four integral quadrants into conversation, thus making it easier to explore different perspectives.
