When we face a challenge what we often see is the 85% things which we might not have control over and end up feeling helpless. Being in a VUCA(Volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) world we face situations like these quite frequently both in professional and personal life. Imagine if you are in one such situation yet you get good results, how great it would be? Because there are still a few things which we call the 15% solution to a problem which we fail to see as its like our shadow and best seen by others.

15% solution is similar to moving a few rocks to change the course of a river. This activity is exactly about moving a few rocks to find great solutions to the challenges we are facing NOW, just thinking about what is the best you can do without more resources, authority or permissions, by just doing the things in your control

In this session we would explore 15% solution along with Troika

 
 

Outline/Structure of the Talk

1. Introducing Liberating structures as a concept

    I like these aspects of the submission, and they should be retained:

    • ...Introduction to LS
    • Impromptu networking
    • 1-2-4-All
    • Troika consulting

    I think the submission could be improved by:

    • The title says, small changes, big impact. The description talks about 85% uncontrollability and 15% solution. If you can properly restructure your slides to elaborate more about 15% solutions first and then do 15% with Troika, it will be good. I could not see & hear that clearly in your 23 mins video.
    • Also, I see the tags as 45 min and 30 mins, can you be clear whether this will be 30 or 45 mins?

      Hello Krishnakumar Chinnappachari ,

      Thank You for the comment!

      This topic demonstrates only 2 Liberating Structures - 15% solution with Troika, it can be presented without slides(an experiment we did in the Business Agility Conference 2019 in Bangalore where I had presented this topic without slides) but if slides are required I can sure make the changes you have suggested. The video is from the generic session I had taken on Liberating structures and is not specific to the 2 LS I have covered in this submission.

      If we demonstrate the complete 3 cycles of Troika we can stick to 30 minutes.

      Please let me know if you have any follow up questions.

      Thank you

      Rucha

    What keeps a business ticking? Customer value.

    • Do you know that 75% of consumers are willing to pay more if they love the product?
    • Have you realized that around 60% of features in a product are rarely or never used.

    With this, it is evident that users do not buy or use all that you build and they pay more if they love it. Hence it is important to plan, prioritize and produce as per customer value. But what makes a product lovable and how to win customers?

    In this session, I am going to discuss in detail about the new techniques i.e. "PLS DO SIR" which I have implemented with 10+ Scrum teams, how to make a product lovable, how asking the right questions helped us in uncovering issues, how to build undaunted teams and when to engage customers.

    You can deliver great "VALUE" to your customer if you can take care of the above.

    Let's get onto a journey

    From "No" /"Yes, but" to "Yes, and"!

    Improv is the act of working together to build something new from a bunch of quickly generated ideas, disposing quickly that don’t work and building on the things that do along the way. The more an improv team works together, the more they trust each other, and the better they know each other’s’ strengths and how to use them. Isn’t it Agile Teams also all about?

    Make other people look good. This will make you look better, too. Let's experience this through fun games!

    Although management experts have recommended to eliminate employee performance appraisals for over 40 years, they are a fact of life for many who work in traditional enterprises. For Scrum Masters and others that still have to live with them, this talk will help you learn how to use Scrum itself to prepare you to outperform any performance review, and to be able to deliver a stellar performance review in real time at any moment!

    The craft of Agile Coaching fundamentally requires deep, insightful, meaningful communication. In everyday execution, this typically involves a coach and the coachees having a conversation, or dialog. However, there are other ways that an Agile Coach and their coachees can connect – nonverbal communication.

    Explore the different aspects of nonverbal communication in the domain of the Agile Coach! This workshop overviews nonverbal communication in Agile Coaching and provides a starting point for developing this critical skill.

    What is leadership Agility?

    This workshop will introduce a promising framework for leaders to increase Self-awareness in them and help them connect the "Why" and "How" part. Over the years,

    I have learned that the future is already here and that your organization’s survival is based on several critical factors—including its ability to be agile — one of the essential drivers to achieve this through leadership agility.

    Learning objective:

    -Introduce four areas that a Leader should all focus on.

    -Use Ken Wilber’s integral model as an anchor point.

    -Use “I\Its” quadrants

    -Relate I/its Quadrant as the Future Focus of Leadership

    - Increase self-awareness on what quadrant we are residing.

    Discussion:

    -Agile Leaders need to keep the balance to focus on all four areas

    -Too much focus on the right two quadrants (and none on the left) leads to disengagement and mechanical agile implementations

    -Too much emphasis on the left two-quadrant (and none on the right) leads to a lack of results and ambiguity

    What's Unique?

    I would extend this Wilber Model with a few practices that would help leaders to move from Impasse to Insights

    This workshop is 100% activity-oriented and will enhance awareness level in Leaders.

    A powerful tool help leaders to balance "I" vs "We" quadrant. Connect the "Vision" and "People" in an Enterprise.

    As an agilist, you all heard about the organizational transformation, leadership agility, etc. Also, you might be a change agent working as part of this adoption.

    Many people refer or point out to the Organization reinvented book as a reference as part of the agile adoption journey.

    Here is a true story of a small NGO, from the very southern part of India, in existence for the past 15+ years and serving humanity by doing a grassroots level change. They have shown the meaning of empowerment, self-managing and self-organizing in an absolutely different way.

    I want to talk about this group (though they have never heard of the agile movement, though the founder had a background of Software development).

    Transformation has become the buzz word of the times with it spreading over various manifestations like agile, devops, business agility, organizations transformation etc. At the same time most transformation initiatives are driven in a global organizational and team environment.

    In a global environment, we look at scaling and standardization quite frequently. Organizations train everyone alike with same content, same philosophy, same tools, and standards yet we struggle in producing exceptional/uniform results that are sustainable. We see teams falling back to their old ways of working leaving a question on the transformation itself.

    Transformation is often seen as a series of changes in the way we work, the process rules, the way we are structured and several other things. However none of the changes mentioned above guarantees a transformation that is sustainable in delivering business value.

    In this talk, we explore

    • The possible areas to look at why often we fail in sustainable transformation
    • Even after a transformation exercise, why do organizations have to still deal with areas of accountability, commitment and ownership and delivery at cadence.
    • What really matters in a transformation exercise, are we focusing on the right things?
    • Essential ingredients for a sustainable transformation

    Experience Report
    Intermediate

    Every organisation hopes / expects / demands high performance from their employees and teams. It's not very long ago when most effective organisations in the world had a ritual called yearly goal - setting. Many organisations still continue with this where the HR cascades a set of goals set by the organisation's leaders for their employees. This is usually followed by a quarterly to yearly review cycle which with most organisations are linked with incentives. In general terms, there ain't any flaw with this system; goal setting is an efficient way to continuously improve oneself. However, the execution of this process may be flawed and may lead to unoptimized results.

    With the advent of business agility, this focus shifted towards continuously learning & improving organisations. This meant that faster feedback was highly recommended for performance improvement and the idea of year-long goal setting seemed a talk of the yesteryears. Many organisations embraced this change by completely abolishing the yearly goal setting practice and instead relying on mentor relationships for an individual's performance improvement. This did improve relationships at the same time hindered transparency since the organisation goals were no longer directly accessed by every employee.

    When seen from the perspective of game theory, it's evident that optimum results are obtained when employees achieve goals which are highly beneficial to them at the same time aligned with the organisation's goals. With the former approach explained above, it's pretty clear that the employees in the first case were aware of the organisation's goals, even if the goals were not aligned with their personal goals. Whereas in the latter case, the lack of transparency meant that the individual's goals were highly focused and may not be in-line with the organisation's objectives.

    This is where Performance Kaizen aligns these two systems with a flavour of Management 3.0 in order to create an optimum setup where high performing individuals, teams, and organisations can thrive. In this session, we present a case study of this implementation at Springer Nature along with our results and learnings; followed by a brief hands-on exercise for the attendees

    Rucha Ramchandra Kapare - Including & Unleashing everyone with Liberating Structures

    90 Mins
    Workshop
    Beginner

    Liberating Structures are a set of easy to learn rules that make it easy to include and unleash everyone in shaping next steps. When used routinely they make it possible to build the kind of organization that everybody wants.

    “They introduce tiny shifts in the way we meet, plan, decide and relate to one another. “

    Unlike the traditional discussions or structures where the control of a discussion lies with one person, Liberating Structures make it possible to include everybody regardless of group size and distribute the control among all participants.

    As a business Analyst I have to do a lot of workshops, interviews and sessions day in and day out with Stakeholders and users. And these techniques come in very handy. For a newbie who wants to learn them the techniques are beautifully clubbed in packs according to your needs of whether you want to plan, share, do a retro etc. Pick the one you need that suits your needs, read the very clear and concise instructions and you are all set to include and unleash everyone.

    In this session I plan to introduce you the set of 30 plus Liberating structures and demonstrate 2 of them. The session is going to be fun filled with a lot of hands on, through which you can communicate and collaborate better immediately and the best part is you do not need any special skills.
