Agile transformations are exceptionally hard, particularly at very large enterprises. Many companies embark on adopting Agile practices yet fail to reap the benefits of being Agile. For example, focusing on the ceremonies or events of a particular methodology or thinking of Agile as another tool or process instead of realizing that ultimately being Agile is a dramatic shift in mindset and culture. The challenges of an Agile transformation are much more entrenched and compounded at an enterprise level where the difficulty of the transformation is proportional to the scale of the enterprise.
This talk explores using the concept of an Open Space as a mechanism to evolve the culture of the organization from a siloed command-and-control hierarchy with rigid roles, processes, and procedures to a more fluid collaborative agile environment embodying the agile value of individuals and interactions over processes and tools.
In this talk will share how to benefit from the journey of a transformation towards an Agile culture using example of applying Open Space across various groups at the Royal Bank of Canada.
